The Barmine layer.
The L9 Bar Mine is a large rectangular British anti-tank land mine. The bar mine’s principal advantage is its long length, and therefore its trigger length. A typical anti-tank landmine is circular, and a vehicle’s wheels or tracks, which make up only a small proportion of its total width, must actually press on the mine to activate it. To increase the probability of a vehicle striking the mine, the mine’s effective trigger width must be increased.
The long mines were laid through this simple plough attached to the rear of a FV432 Armoured Personnel Carrier. Laying circular mines in similar fashion requires a far larger plough and more powerful towing vehicle.
