The standard anti-tank mine used by the Germans in World War II was called the "Tellermine." It was loaded with one pound of TNT. It was a large flattened circular plate shaped mine with a carrying handle on one side. It featured a pull igniter for special use, but it was more commonly ignited with a centrally mounted detonator charge that was screwed into the base charge. It took 350 pounds to set off this mine which could rip the tracks off any tank.
