" Streu Mi 49 "

The main parts of the mine are:
1. Minenkörper (mine body)
2. Druckteller 49 (DkT 49) (pressure plate)
3. Druckzünder 49 (DkZ 49) (pressure fuze)

The Minenkörper has two secondary fuze wells, one on the side and one on the base. At the side for the blasting cap Nr. 8 and at the bottom for the ZugDruckZünder 49 (ZDZ 49). ZDZ 49 was used to booby-trap the mine.
