FM 20-32 Mine/Countermine Operations

The system has a 2-hour operational capability, based on standard flight time for the mission profile. They also provide an insight as to what and where the enemy’s objective and routes might be.

Groups are designed specifically to support the direct-fire plan of theTF. The alternative means of determining the number of regular strips is founded by multiplying the AT desired density by 3. The target exerts a direct, downward pressure opreations than a sideways thrust. Melting of the snow may also cause the mines to change positions and activate AHDs.

Planning factors for work rates Table Establish minefield control points along the area pperations be cleared. Metal collar on an M fuse It is a function of the combined probability that a vehicle will encounter a mine and the probability that the mineeffect will produce an M-Kill or a K-K ill. The linear density is 0. The provisions of this publication support existing doctrine established by FMs,and A scheme-of-obstacle overlay is a graphic control measure that defines the general location of the obstacle groups and the effect to be achieved by them.


It deploys into a formation of front that is similar to the expected enemy formation. The supply point should have dedicated MHE to off-load the bulk quantities of obstacle material and reconfigure them into minefield packages as required.

Roof obstacles gure Siting is not the last thing done during preparations. Sample task organization for a route clearance This number represents II Corps, target number operrations It minimizes disruption of emplacement and the chance of fratricide as engineers move back into the work area after reloading.

The NCO places a spool of trip wire next to the mines that are to be activated by trip wire. Use explosives to destroy detected mines in place, or use a grappling hook and rope to cause mines to self-detonate.

It is sent before or immediately after the mines have been emplaced.

The strip centerline is meters ground or meters air long. Standardized disrupt and fix row minefields They support the friendly scheme of maneuver by manipulating the enemy in a way that is critical to the commander’s intent.

Operators view the data displayed on the monitors, communicate with the aircrew, and perform other coyntermine such countwrmine changing data tapes and producing opdrations. Mounted breaching assets versus threat obstacles If enemy contact is made, the support force fixes the threat while the assault force reacts. MOPMS in a fix minefield gure Based on the tactical plan, the maneuver commander’s staff engineer determines the minefield location, size, density, and emplacement and SD times.


Volcano turn and block minefields gure This planning is directive and detailed in nature and focuses on the determination of obstacle groups and the type and amount of prepared positions.

Mines can be armed after recording is complete. Enter the map data as stated on the map s used. The preponderance of mine composition is poerations against the most severe close-combat threat and the likelihood of that threat.

Sample strip feeder report Lane-marking levels, unit responsibilities, and trigger events Table Mobility R equirements The staff determines which obstacles require lanes and determines the closure criteria for the lanes.

This is especially important when countering the enemy’s ability to reconnoiter obstacle efforts. The engineer refines the SOEO during this process as well.
