The German S-mine
in German), also known as the "Bouncing Betty
", is the best-known version of a class of mines known as bouncing mines
. When triggered, these mines launch into the air and then detonate
at about 0.9 meters (3 ft). The explosion projects a lethal spray of shrapnel
in all directions. The S-mine was an anti-personnel mine
developed by Germany in the 1930s and used extensively by German forces during World War II
. It was designed to be used in open areas against unshielded infantry
. Two versions were produced, designated by the year of their first production: the SMi-35 and SMi-44. There are only minor differences between the two models.
The S-mine entered production in 1935 and served as a key part of the defensive strategy of the Third Reich
. Until production ceased in 1945, Germany produced over 1.93 million S-mines.
These mines inflicted heavy casualties and slowed, or even repelled, drives into German-held territory throughout the war. The design was lethal, successful and much imitated. The S-mine remains one of the definitive weapons of World War II.
