H-136: Conventional Mines

Previous: H-134: Modular Pack Mine System, Man-Portable

H-136. Conventional mines are hand-emplaced mines requiring manual arming. This type of mine laying is labor, resource, and transport-intensive. Soldiers emplace conventional mines within a defined, marked boundary and lay them individually or in clusters. They record each mine location so the mines can be recovered. Soldiers can surface lay or bury conventional mines and may place AHDs on antitank mines.

Note. The United States will—

  • Not use APL outside the Korean Peninsula;
  • Not assist, encourage, or induce anyone outside the Korean Peninsula to engage in activity prohibited by the Ottawa Convention; and
  • Undertake to destroy APL stockpiles not required for the defense of the Republic of Korea.
