For reference. Anyone got any pictures etc?
Taken from I Corps Intel file WO 167/125:
I think that this could be that mine:
or maybe this one
Lone Sentry: TM-E 30-451 Handbook on German Military Forces: Figure 88: Antitank Mines: Engineer Equipment: Equipment
From 12 Lancers WD.
Some more info taken from Taken from WO167/190 1 Division General Staff War Diary
Never saw one of these. Yet we cleared a quarter of a million of all types.Mostly Shu, Teller and Regal mines along with stacks of S mines.
Very often under fire and with the anti tank sprinkled with Shu and S mines just to keep us on our toes.
Later we had to deal with dug in Sea mines, and aerial bombs, Even in the cliffs above the roads set to explode when traffic approached.
FRom a Tank point of view - the Teller was the worst as it usually broke the track - and the driver and co-driver's ankles thus making the Tank motionless and open to attack by the panzershriek - sometimes they would double them up - and that really caused damage - then on dismounting - the area was usually full of schu mines which made life interesting .
The only two I can find any references to in my encyclopedea of German weapons
are the Model 406(b) a Belgium anti heavy tank mine used by the German Army and 407(f) which was a French anti light tank mine.
Both fit the description of metal cased mines.
