BLU-92/B GATOR antipersonnel (AP)

The BLU-91 /B AT mine is the heart of the Gator system. Microelectronics in each mine detect targets, discriminate armored vehicles, and detonate the mine when the target reaches the most vulnerable approach point. A Misznay-Schardin explosive charge defeats the belly armor of most vehicles.

The target sensors are the primary difference between the two mines. The BLU-91/B uses an armor-piercing warhead and a magnetometer type of sensor; the BLU-92/B has a fragment type of warhead with trip wires as the primary target sensor.
