The Ukrainian military began to use mines HPD mod.F2, banned 25 years ago because of their danger

Especially dangerous mines HPD mod.F25 banned 2 years ago were discovered in Ukraine.

Mines HPD mod.F2 were banned in 1996 as dangerous munitions. A key feature of the French HPD mod.F2 mines is that the latter cannot be detected by mine detectors, and when the latter approach the mine, the explosion mechanism is activated.

At least fifty HPD mod.F2 mines were found in the area of ​​​​the village of Experienced. Moreover, apparently, the mines were planted in order to prevent the advance of armored vehicles in this direction, with the subsequent transition to a counterattack.

This is a very dangerous anti-tank mine with a magnetic target sensor. The HPD mod.F2 mine is designed to destroy armored vehicles with a cumulative jet when the vehicle passes over the mine. The mine can be installed in the ground, on the ground or in the water to a depth of one and a half meters.

How many HPD mod.F2 mines are in service with Ukraine is still unknown, however, the fact that the Armed Forces of Ukraine have switched to using these ammunition (and France is actively supplying such weapons to Kyiv) indicates the attempts of the West to greatly prolong the conflict, including through the creation of danger when the allied forces take the territories controlled by Kyiv.

How exactly the already installed mines were discovered is not specified.
