Minenräumpanzer III

Photo from Panzer III and Its Variants

Landmines were revealed to be one of the banes of armored warfare during World War II. All combatants developed numerous specialized vehicles in an attempt to deal with enemy minefields and provide a clear avenue for tanks and infantry. The Panzer III variant was equipped with an extended and raised suspension along with a front-mounted book to carry the mine-detonation equipment. The photo above shows the chassis sans boom.
