Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

I have played a few scenarios where during the briefing I was warned about hastily laid mines possible in my path.
When playing I can never locate any minefield prior to entering it. Hastily laid or not. Even if I slowly advance, my troops always are caught in the middle of the field. I have even advanced with squads of engineers leading and I never know there are mines until someone screams.  :'(
Is there not a way to detect minefields? Especially tank mines. My engineers will walk over a spot and a tank following them blows up.  Kwaad
Is this the way CM is designed or can I learn something different to better protect my troops?
Thanks in Advance,

Wow!  Big spender... I always have a nice spare kubelwagon or jeep around for that... for the daisy chain AT mines, infantry can spot these, so if they are 'hastily laid', then often an infantry advance ahead of the tanks is a good idea.  Otherwise, never lead with your top tanks... that is what scout cars are for... they blow up good... they blow up reeel good.

: )

Cheers!

A very fun tip would be to smoke your minefields before the enemy drive into them Knipoog

I have done this a few times now, your opponent might think the smoke can cover his armor advancing....
Just think of how they react when they hit a minefield, also works for daisychains Smiley
