Mine roller

A mine roller is a tank-mounted device designed to detonate anti-tank mines. The device is usually comprised of two push arm assemblies with two roller banks which are fitted to the front of the tank's tracks. Each roller bank has four rollers, which apply ground pressure higher than that exerted by the tank. This principle ensures the explosion of pressure fused anti-tank mines, which would otherwise explode under the track itself.
