Landmine Handouts

#1
Where oh where would i find handouts on landmines. Similar to the cards seen advertised on here late last year. Just a picture and a little bit about them (recognition features etc) would be splendid.

Write to the MITC, they have all sorts of stuff from datasheets to Minestrike info/recording cards and videos.

I believe they can also arrange briefings if you are deploying to a particular area which has a mine problem.

Symbol seeker provide booklets on mines and UXO but they're pretty iffy at best, ordata is good if you know what you're looking at-ish but get advice from your nearest brigade RE trg wing, they'll be more than happy to help and give pre deployment briefs as well.
failing all of the above ask the local UN mine action coordination centre, (MACC) but be prepared to know more than they do! sad I know but true!!

Ali-Gee,

Do we take it you have extensive experience with MACs? reason I ask is, I just think it is a bit of a harsh statement to make?



P.S. The original Landmine Playing Cards can still be purchased in Bulk (min 50 Packs). Here

Bit pedantic and off-thread, but like Gundulph, I question these remarks - not only harsh, but inaccurate. National MACs have come a long way, particularly with the introduction (and national acceptance) of IMAS. A sign of their maturity was the withdrawl of "Internationals" (ie Mil in mufti or ex mil) from key posts within them, ie Managers & Technical Advisors. Certainly the ones I worked in were pretty good, and their MRE was second to none. And no, I haven't gone native!

I've found that the withdrawal if internationals in the maccs has been their downfall hence the comment. I've had first hand experience of good ones (Kosovo) and really pants ones (Albania) not all are UN run so standards vary greatly across the board so I was just warning them not to have their expectations too high
