Yeah if the tank is damaged one mine might do it, but if your using them, always put down two, just to make sure. But you can toss that third one down somewhere else, you might get lucky and bag a jeep, or at the very least you'll get some vehicle damage points and make it easier to finish off. smile.gif

Right ladies, in exact numbers:

1 mine does 865 damage to a vehicle.
Tanks and APCs have 1250 health.

So it would take 2 mines to destroy a tank/APC.

You could get technical with specialization variables, but that there's the bottom line.

yeah but you can only have 6 mines at most on a field at a time
and if u space them too close then 1 shot will detonate your whole mine field and maybe kill your teammates

An excellent point. I found that laying them in little groups of 2 worked the best. Because a lot of times, if the driver sees one group and detonates them, he'll drop his guard, and gun it around the corner right into the next set. smile.gif

The land-mine has a 6 meters infantry kill zone. Although it does 865 Explosive (side and rear bonuses don't count) Damage, it does a good 290 damage to infantry in the 6 meters zone, which decreases gradually to 0 damage at 8 meters. I can tell you that the mine reacts to anything that comes half a meter to it and explodes, but I don't know if the blast radius affects adjacent mines.

Also, DenKirson (the guy whose tables you all refer to) has discovered that a single mine can sometimes (not that commonly) kill a full health tank. Also he has reasons to believe that the underside of vehicles is more vulnerable to damage, but that's not confirmed yet.

From my own experience, the mines are inconsistent. It takes 2 mines in 90% of the cases to kill a Tank/APC, but I do recall seeing only a single mine doing it.

Actually, tanks have a damage multiplier of 2x from the sides and rear, so if the mine detonates at either the sides or rear of the tank or APC, one mine will suffice since it will do 2 x 865 = 1730, well above the 1250 health of the vehicle. In most cases the mine will detonate in front, doing 1 x 865 = 865 damage, in which case 2 mines are needed. But if you are flanking a tank, you can lay one behind him and wait for him to back up (you can encourage him to by drill-damaging him, making him fall back into the natural direction: backwards) or you can lay a mine to his side and toss a grenade at it or shoot it. Either way, the explosion of 1 AT mine will destroy the heavy vehicle if placed at its side or rear.

yes, but the mine in my case was infront of me, and quite a distance away, so i suppose that 1 mine is inconsistent, but 2 will always do

As i said, i saw one mine killing a tank (can bet that the tank was full hp). The driver himself was like WTF

Actually guys the Mine doesn't take side and rear into consideration. It does explosive damage which doesn't count the multipliers. Only weapons that aside from doing explosive also do projectile damage count. Those are the RPG-7, the CG and the AT4.

I've killed a couple tanks with one mine and a grenade, where I run up toss the mine on the side of the tank, huck the grenade on to the AT mine then scram. I'm pretty sure they had full health, but it was pretty random whether it'd happen or not. I also had improved explosives.

Like I said, the mines have a mind of their own. I myself have driven a 99% tank frontally into a mine and died.

I find if I get dooped by a mine at full health, and I've seen other folk get whacked this way too, it's because "the mine" was in fact 2 or 3 mines clumped together. If one goes off, the other/s beside it will detonate too.

Have found it to be rather effective myself laugh.gif

I know that if you throw a mine, then throw another one without moving at all, the mines will line up and it will look like one mine...
