Looking for pics of the M16 mine AP with markings


#1

Gents,

anything would be appreciated, especially with mfg. markings.
Possibly from different years.
Best,
Dave

This was a direct copy of the German bounding mine of WWII right?


#2

Dragontooth, no, not a direct copy. Just the general idea and layout.


#3

Anything new gents?

And yes, mines are ammunition. :-)

What would be your question?

Here the M16:

Thank you guys, that was fast!

Actually I was alsso wondering if anybody knew who made the actual mines themselves?

the concept is very interersting and seems like a good kill mechanism.

maybe Aerojet? Honeywell? Jeez, there are so many possibilities.

i know they were loaded at IOP and LOP
Iowa and Louisiana, just would like to know who made the actual mine.

hope im not the only ordnance fetishist who likes to get the whole picture on munitions from development, production to field use.

Certainly you are not alone, I just think that this is not the place where all mine folks are meeting (if there is such a place after all).

Unless there are no other marking I would assume the indicated manufacturers are the ones who made the mines. It is just normal that many designers and manufacturers are ordering their components from regular manufacturers of steel and or plastic parts and assemble these themselfes. So the part manufacturers are just regular companies which are often clueless what they are producing.
Was that your question?

#10

Dragon, certainly there are records on absolutely everything. The problem is that we just do not get our hands on it.


#11
