MATS/1.4 mine

MATS/1.4 mine

The MATS/1.4 is a scatterable Italian circular plastic cased minimum metal blast resistant anti-tank blast mine. It uses a pneumatic fuze which is resistant to shock and blast. The mines plastic case is water proof, and the mine can be scattered from a helicopter travelling at up to 200 km/h. The mine is normally tan colored. The mines main charge is relatively small, so when hand emplaced the mine can be stacked, to increase its effect.

The mine is no longer in production.
