This report describes a series of SIMNET Semi-automated Forces armor engagements in which antihelicopter mines are deployed. The impact of two types of antihelicopter mines on armor exchange ratios and other combat measures is presented. Learning effects are analyzed for both types of mine. Antihelicopter mines can have a significant effect on small unit engagements when used in conjunction with an effective air defense system. Direct fire and sublet launched antihelicopter mines, when properly deployed, are capable of depriving attack helicopters safe ingress routes and firing positions.
