Description[edit | edit source]
"The M1A1 is a circular steel cased U.S. anti-tank mines recognizable by its' distinctive cross shaped pressure spider. It is a bit easier to hide in tall grass."
History[edit | edit source]
The M1A1 Anti-Tank Mine is a pressure-activated mine used throughout World War II capable of doing massive damage to any vehicle unfortunate enough to strike it. It uses a distinctive and recognizable cross-shaped pressure plate, known as a spider. The mine only requires 250lbs (113kg) of pressure on the edge or 500lbs (227kg) from the center. It has two tamper-proof fuzes, one on the side and one beneath, to deter defusal and reuse by enemy engineers.
Gameplay[edit | edit source]
A single M1A1 is capable of destroying enemy armor immediately. They are also very cheap to replenish compared to other anti-tank weapons. Setting up traps on roads and choke points is a very good way to stop enemy armor. It's possible to detonate a mine by shooting it, which means it's possible to destroy stationary tanks with this weapon. Be careful when you place them! Friendly vehicles can also be destroyed with them, causing heavy casualties to the team. Be sure not to block paths that friendly vehicles will want to use. Due to the dark green color of this mine, it can be hidden in low grass around narrow passages, or between buildings.
