Having nothing to judge the scale I don't really know, but it looks big and is probably heavy.

It's the non castoring back wheel off a NAFFI shopping trolly. You can tell it's NAFFI by the colour.

Gents,

Is anyone able to identify this landmine recovered by Algerian Sy forces at In Amenas? This is a re-post from the Infantry forum. Grateful for any ideas/input.
If that is a det behind the mine in the photo then it looks pretty small so probably a AP mine, still big enough to piss you off though.

Yep I'm going with Oyibo,
Its a small topless spacecraft made from Belgian Chocolate.
Its also called a "Party Mine" when it takes off everybody gets a bit.

I'm going to have a stab at the initiator/trigger for a Belgian PRB M3 or M3A1 AT mine. The pressure plate is missing on the ones in the vid.

Either that, or it's a crashed UFO containing very small aliens.

Thanks a million, I'm pursuing this tip via other means but looks convincing
