The BLU-43/B is a scatterable blast antipersonnel mine produced by the United States and delivered by the Air Force. This mine was used in the Vietnam War and has since been exploited and copied by the former Soviet Union. The mine is nicknamed the DRAGONTOOTH. The system uses a liquid explosive and a hydrostatic fuze. The Russian version is the PFM-1 and PFM-1S (Butterfly mines).
