When activated the Medalyon POM-3 fires an explosive charge shooting out star-shaped metal fragments in a 360-degree horizontal arc while minimizing their effect outside the mine’s designated effective range.

What makes the Medalyon so special is its electronic brain, which rules out any premature explosion and unauthorized defusing.

The Scientific Research Institute of Engineering’s director Igor Smirnov told Zvezda TV on Friday that even if the enemy is lucky enough to get hold of the POM-3 and is still alive alive afterwards, he will never be able to figure out how it works.The mine’s Russian-designed microchip is simply impossible to crack.

The head of the Institute’s department of munitions, mining and demining, Mikhail Zhukov, said that, thanks to the mine’s electronic brain, the time of its self-destruction can be remotely set, changed or canceled altogether.

The POM-3’s other unique advantage is its ability to distinguish soldiers from civilians and go off only when approached by someone who is armed.

The POM-3 smart mine has already passed field tests and will soon be shipped to Russia’s armed forces. Via: Sputnik News
