Panzer - Another "special" from Germany's WWII armoury was the Borgward B IV (not a Goliath as the caption says)

This vehicle was used for clearing minefields and worked in the same way as the Goliath, but instead of blowing itself up with the explosive charge it merely placed it in the minefield and then drove off to safety. The charge would then explode the mines and clear a path for an armoured or infantry attack.

Entire units, denoted as funklenk (radio-linked, or operated) were equipped with both Panzers and the Borgward which enabled them to attack through heavily mined parts of the front.

Babe - The tantalizing atmosphere of a 1969 stripbar...
