 Technical Summary

    Obstacle Clearance Blade
Mineplough is used to rapidly breach mined obstacles by creating a mine free path for subsequent vehicles to follow. A raking action brings mines to the surface and moves them to each side of the vehicle. The Mineplough can be fitted to any main battle tank or engineer tank.

The Full Width Mineplough (FWMP) is capable of breaching a complete lane and can quickly convert to a Track Width Mineplough (TWMP) by removing the centre section.

The mineplough is fitted with internal hydraulic powerpacks, or without if hydraulic power is built into the vehicle.

The mineplough is fitted to the vehicle with a simple mounting system which is common to the Dozer and Surface Clearance Device (SCD).

An optional Magnetic Signature Duplicator (MSD) protects the equipment from the effects of magnetically fused mines.

Also known as: Engineer Mine Plough (EMP), Full Width Mine Plow and Track Width Mine Plow.
