Gameplay[edit | edit source]
The US Army and British Army Combat Engineer kit comes equipped with a single M15 Anti-Tank Mine. Once placed on the ground, a mine can further be concealed by equipping the Entrenching tool and digging the mine into the ground with LMB. Conversely, an enemy mine can be destroyed by the Entrenching tool, simply dig it up by holding RMB. Up to 10 mines can be deployed by a single Combat Engineer at one time, as long as the Engineer can keep resupplying his ammunition. Some vehicles will be instantly destroyed by mines, but many heavier vehicles will simply have their wheels or tracks knocked out, and receive a certain degree of damage depending on the vehicle's armor.
