Mine canister with MN-123 scatterable mines

For scatter-laying of anti-tank mine fields

Usage:
Mine canisters with MN-123 scatterable mines are designed for scatter-laying of anti-tank mine fields as part of the Engineering Mining System, from land vehicles. They contain 5 MN-123 anti-tank mines and electrical system for dispensing individual mines and setting self-destruction time, based on a program of a controller installed in the base vehicle.

Operation:
The canister allows mines to be dispensed from a barrel dispenser installed on the Engineering Mining System (ISM). Each dispenser has a mechanically and electrically interconnected set of 20 barrels for dispensing and disassembling of MN-123 mine canisters. A moving vehicle with mine dispensers can lay a mine field along its route, about 70 m wide, while ensuring its own safety. A design of dispensers allows mines to be laid on both sides of the vehicle, behind the vehicle and to the sides, at 45 degrees angle opposite to moving direction.
