Much has been said about Ukraine’s lethal set of western-donated anti-armor and anti-tank weapons that have been helping them take out Russian tanks left and right since the start of the war. However, there is another anti-tank weapon that the Ukrainian forces have used to bust Russian tanks up to smithereens, the German DM22 PARM2 mine.

Germany, which has been lukewarm and hesitant toward sending Ukraine heavier offensive weapons, delivered these mines as part of their military support package to Kyiv last May. German newspaper Spiegel reported that some 2,450 RGW90 anti-tank weapon systems, 1,600 DM22 off-roue anti-tank mines, and 3,000 DM31 anti-tank mines had been successfully delivered to Ukraine. Since then, these weapons have been put to good use by the Ukrainian forces.
