German M35 Bouncing Betty Antipersonnel Mine

Flag_of_the_NSDAP_(1920–1945).svgWell what can I say that the title already didn’t? This is a M35 Antipersonnel mine with the compound three zunder setup on top. This was replaced by the M44 in 1944 that was simpler to manufacture. This is quite heavy and rather nasty inside as it contains hundreds of sharp medal rod clippings designed to tear the shit out of people.

Sappers from the British 51st Highland Division render a group of M35’s safe somewhere in the Western Desert.
