    You hear a loud pop and your feet is maimed to full lifetime disability.

    Technically speaking it's a soft PE shell with liquid explosive compound and rupture membrane-type detonator triggered by the pressure spike you'll cause stepping on it.

        it's a high explosive, more or less like a hand grenade in terms of power.

          They're a butterfly mines, designation PFM1. They are scattered over a wide area via various means, flutter to the ground and are victim detonated via contact. The Soviet communists used shitloads of them in their occupation of Afghanistan.

          >PFM-1 is a scatterable anti-personnel land mine of Soviet and Russian production.[1] It is also known as a Green Parrot or Butterfly Mine.[1] The mines can be deployed from mortars, helicopters and airplanes in large numbers; they glide to the ground without exploding and will explode later upon contact

          Oh sweet. So when the war is over, civilians get maimed by hidden and forgotten mines. I guess no 3rd world country is complete without a bunch of UXO scattered about.

            Sometimes the compound inside or the body of the mine itself is designed to degrade after a certain period of time, releasing the chemicals into the environment, which essentially defuses the mine.
            That's probably some bullshit to make it more palatable though, and they probably persist way longer than stated on the tin.

            these are actually one of the mines that I thought specifically sparked up more geneva convention rules about how they're used because they (were) hard to detect and looked like a toy, so kids were playing with old ones and blowing off their hands

            they get scattered by a helicopter too, it's not like a guy consciously placed it somewhere but I guess that's also possible

              What kind of toys look like that? It seems more like garbage or a tool.
              Children would probably play with any type of UXO if not properly informed.

                The largest initial problem with them was that they were forest green, and the first time they were deployed was in Afghanistan, so they were incredibly visible.
                Children would see these little green things either floating out of the sky behind helicopters flying by, or find them floating in water, or laying on the ground and think "Oh hey, a plastic thing, lets pick it up and see what it is?" and it'd amputate something or kill them.
                They're also hard to find, even with a metal detector, so they persist for quite a while.

            They are supposed to disarm or explode after a set period of time. But most EOD guys who have seen them haven't found anything in them that's supposed to do that.

              Membrane separating the compounds breaks down over time which causes them to eventually explode, or one of the chemicals has an extremely short shelf life, which renders it (mostly) inert. Both are slowed down by cold weather, so they can last a long time outside of summer.

        Yeah, they’re called toepoppers for a reason, newfriend. It’ll shred your foot and you likely won’t die right away so you’ll take up more manpower by requiring guys to drag your ass back to somewhere safe. Effective, extremely so when dropped from planes

            You just tell them to avoid the area. Mines aren’t necessarily meant to kill or maim, a lot of the time they’re used just for area denial and funneling enemies into an ambush spot. Although aerial-dropped ones might be a little more dangerous considering the wind can carry those mines pretty far off course depending on how low you’re flying, environmental factors, etc. and I’m just speaking from what I know, so take what I say with a grain of salt

        Consider a rifle cartridge. It's around the same size and can push a chunk of metal for a mile and a half. These devices however do not have to work around constraints like not-splitting-a-chamber-in-half.

    Reminder that the Russians complained to the UN about how our airdrop mines will hurt too many civilians because they look like aid packages (they're both hi-vis yellow, that's it), all while manufacturing these Happy Meal toys to scatter over their uppity neighbor states.

        At that time it was Georgia, although they'd left thousands of them scattered throughout Afghanistan as well.

                In particular the Soviets were often referred to as Russians since they were the successor of the Russian empire even if some people in question weren't ethnic Russians or citizens of the Russian SFSR.
