XM204 Top Attack Muntion

The US Army is trialing the XM204 interim wide area top attack munition.

Essentially it's a suitcase sized smart landmine that appears to detects approaching armoured vehicles using sound and seismic sensors then launches a a top attack munition when the target is in range.

Would be very useful in a place like the Baltics where light forces could use a series of these to delay a Russian advance and channelize a larger attacking armoured force into pre-determined kill zones.
