HomeMINES and CHARGESSOVIET & BALKANYugoslavia

Like the KB1, this "ABABEL" is launched with the M87 Orkan, which can hold 24 mines in 8 containers.
The mine has a shaped charge which can penetrate up to 400mm.
After the containers get ejected from the rocket, they are being stabilized with a parachute.
2.5seconds after the parachute unfolds, the mines are ejected. The folding fins stabilize the mine upon falling and makes sure that the mine lands on its good side.

Another name for this mine is YU-S-AT.

Diameter : 105mm
Weight : 1,8kilo
Fuze : magnetic influence and self-destruction.
