ATMF-08 is designed to be used mainly with the ТМ-62 series of anti-tank mines in order to enhance their performance. It incorporates an explosive formed projectile (EFP) charge which penetrates into the belly armor of the target vehicle and activates the mine. On activation, а clearance charge removes the camouflage soil above the fuse before the EFP detonation. Penetration capability is over 50 mm of armored steel.
The fuse can also bе easily adapted to other types of tank mines.
