VPMR-2A practice mine


The VPMR-2A is practice version of PMR-2A.
Dimension and case materials are the same as for PMR-2A.
A yellow band is painted around the base of the body, which symbolizes that it is practice mine.
Instead of the 100 gram explosive charge, the VPMR-2A has small smoke charge which simulates its activation when the tripwire is pulled.
The smoke goes out through the holes drilled on the mine body. Smoke filling burns approximately 5-6 seconds.



Old production practice mines were issued with a wooden stake. Bodies have four smoke emission holes.
Later version were issued with an aluminium stick and had six eemission holes drilled in the body.
