Long life in water - Cost effective - Over 5000 in service
System Description
MN103 - MANTA is a multi-influence shallow water sea mine, designed to be effective against
landing crafts and small-mid tonnage vessels. The mine can be laid by surface vessels,
helicopters and aircraft. The unique shape, the low target strenght and magnetic signature
make MN103 - MANTA very difficult to be detected. MN103 - MANTA has been combat
proven with excellent performance. The mine logic is based upon a state of the art analysis
of the target acoustic and magnetic influences. The option of a cable remote control increases
the flexibility of employ in harbour, strait or port defence.
