    That’s honestly kind of horrific. Like I was expecting mines to be like something they step on and BOOM lights out.

    This sounds more like “boom” now you bleed out in agony as your foot is torn into small chunks

      Yep. Maiming-size mines are smaller and cheaper, and a wounded soldier that requires evacuation and treatment is actually more of a burden to a force than a dead one.
