Help with Russian Sentence

Post by Jeff Leach » 16 Nov 2018 12:07

I have been working through a Soviet document on the 101 Separate Sapper Battalion, 30 Rifle Division and while listing what the battalion had constructed, it says

3.) Уложено МЗП в количество 300 ракетов.

МЗП = concealed obstacle
ракетов = flares (not rockets)

It's an error. It had to be "пакетов" = packs.

One pack looks like this:

Thanks Eugen, the original document does say "пакетов".
