German Goliath tracked mines near Normandy German Goliath tracked mines near Normandy
 US Army Engineers examine captured German Goliath tracked mines near Normandy. Employed by the Wehrmacht, they were used principally by specialized Panzer and combat engineer units. Goliaths were seen on the beaches of Normandy during D-Day, though most were rendered inoperative due to artillery blasts severing their command cables. D-Day, June 6, 1944.  The Goliath was approximately four feet long, two wide, and one tall. It carried 75–100 kg (165–220 lb) of high explosives and was intended to be used for multiple purposes, such as destroying tanks, disrupting dense infantry formations, and demolition of buildings.

Goliath tracked mine on "Utah Beach" Goliath tracked mine on "Utah Beach"
 Captured German Goliath tracked mines on Utah Beach, Normandy. Goliaths were seen on the beaches of Normandy during D-Day, though most were rendered inoperative due to artillery blasts severing their command cables. D-Day, June 6, 1944.  Although a total of 7,564 Goliaths were produced, the single use weapon was not considered a success due to the high unit cost, low speed (6 mph, or 9.5 km/h), poor ground clearance (11.4 centimeters), vulnerable command cables and thin armour which failed to protect the remote bomb from any form of antitank weapons. The Goliath did help lay the foundation for post-WW2 advances in remote-controlled vehicle technologies.
