German Glasmine 43

Flag_of_the_NSDAP_(1920–1945).svgThis is a German antipersonnel mine made almost entirely of glass. This was so that it would be harder to detect using a mine detector. Because it relies on the 220g blast charge it is intended to maim primarily by taking a leg or foot off an individual soldier.
