Antitank Mine Squad

The Antitank Mine Squad

In addition to my training with the antitank mine platoon, I will receive training with the antitank mine platoon. The antitank mines are used as obstacles to enemy tanks and help in disabling them, or slowing them up so that they are easier for our antitank guns to hit.

The antitank mine platoon consists of three squads and a headquarters group. Each squad is made up of a squad leader and seven pioneers. As squad leader, I am in command of the squad and supervise the laying and removal of mines. As a pioneer, I will aid in staking out mine fields, in laying mines, and in removing mines, both our own and enemy.
