After months of demining sand-filled training landmines and encountering minefields made of wooden disks, it was clear. The psychological fear had completely disappeared. It was that moment when the idea of EST-M1 emerged which could take the minefield training into the 21st century.
After years of testing, we have developed a reusable training landmine that uses NATO 5.56 blank ammunition for the blast and sound effect. The combination of heavy-duty plastic and stainless steel parts makes the EST-M1 highly durable and is able to withstand 2.5 tons of weight.
*The development of EST-M1 was supported by the Estonian Ministry of Defence.
