How to destroy enemy minefields? UR-77 “Meteorit” demining installation.

It fires two rockets to which a long demining charge with an explosive mixture is attached. After its detonation, most anti-tank mines are detonated and a passage for equipment is formed.

The charge is a rope 7 cm thick and 93 m long, filled with a plastic explosive inside. The ammunition of the installation consists of two elongated charges with solid-propellant tow missiles. One charge is enough to create a passage, that is, with one ammunition you can create two passages up to 90 m long.
