MK-25 Mine

Mine Mk 25 is an aircraft-laid bottom mine which was designed and used extensively during the course of World War II. Employing a magnetic induction influence firing mechanism, the Mk 25 is a 2000-pound mine containing an explosive charge of 1200 pounds of HBX-1. Although newly designed flight gear for use with high-speed aircraft has updated the planting capability of Mk 25 mines, they will gradually be phased out of the system and replaced by more modern mines.
