Being HSAG it can be virtually anything, well close ...

Can't remember the exact name (i will have a look in the manuals), but these were used to connect T-mines.
1 mine at each side , the bar acted as a pressure plate, but over a larger area.

I think there's a shorter all steel version as well.

Good find !

Follow up: correct name is "druckschiene".
Several of these, when fitted on T-mine, could be used to rapidly mine a road, correct term for that was "Schnellsperre".

The holes were used to add camouflage.


There's quit a good article about these in Waffe revue nr. 89, starting at page 119.

Odd. For me, it shows a preview of the first page which you can scroll down to see the rest. Shows some pics.

I know this is an old thread, but I am curious, what did your friend do with these? I have been looking for one.
