Naval mines

NATO defines naval mines as ‘an explosive device laid in the water, on the seabed or in the subsoil thereof, with the intention of damaging or sinking ships or of deterring shipping from entering an area or getting out of an area.

Naval mines are known as inexpensive, self-contained explosive devices with significant tactical, operational and strategic value, which makes them a weapon of choice in modern naval warfare. There are six types of naval mines: moored mines; drifting or floating mines; bottom mines; remotely controlled mines; submarine launched mobile mines; and rising or rocket mines.
