The PRM-3 has a single chute. It also has a plow attachment. There is an option of burying the mines
or depositing them on the surface of the ground. The mines can be placed 4 to 5-1/2 meters apart,
depending on the control setting.
Radio electronic combat (REC). The electronic warfare (EW) concept of the OPFOR integrates EW
with artillery rocket fire and air operations. Tactical EW recon elements, both on the ground and in the
air, will follow closely behind advancing regiments. These units will use signal intelligence, direction
finding, jamming, deception, and suppressive artillery fire against our forces. REC elements will
attempt to disrupt and destroy command and control elements, radars, communications centers, and
nuclear delivery means. These teams will use supporting rocket fire to suppress targets at a depth of
more than 200 km.
Figure 1-21. Antipersonnel Mine (PMN)
Description: The PMN is a small, round, flat, box-shaped antipersonnel mine. Its duroplastic casing
has a side hole for the firing mechanism and primer charge. The top half of the mine case is covered
by a rubber sheet which is secured by a metal clasp. The mine contains 200 grams of cast TNT.
Capabilities: The PMN is activated by pressure on the top of the case. This pressure releases a
spring-loaded striker which hits the percussion cap capsule, setting off the main charge. Though rather
small, the PMN can cause serious injury to foot or leg when stepped on.
