The Anti-Personnel Box Mine is a blast-type anti-personnel landmine. It was the Special Weapon of the North Korean Special Operations Force.


The box mine consists of a wooden box with a hinged lid with a slot cut into it. The slot presses down against a retaining pin, which holds back the striker. When sufficient force is applied to the mine, the retaining pin moves, allowing the striker to hit the detonator.


  • Charge: TNT
  • Body casing: Wood
  • Effective range: 10 yards
  • Detonation pressure: 2 lbs


The box mine is commonly used throughout former Warsaw Pact countries. Although it is dangerous because the mine can not be detected by a metal detector, it has a relatively short lifespan, as the wooden box is vulnerable to rotting and splitting, which renders the mine inoperable.


The Box Mine was tested against the M18 Claymore in eliminating a group of three targets. The box mine failed to trigger the pointman's 100G shock patch but still killed it with a potentially fatal leg amputation while the M18 Claymore killed all three targets through its shrapnel spray. The edge was given to the M18 Claymore for its higher lethality.
