It was in the 1930s that German engineers developed a new anti-tank mine. Its production began in 1935 under the name “Tellermine 35”. It is a metal mine with a pressure plate that is widely used by the German armed forces throughout the WW2 and especially during the Battle of Normandy.

Tellermine 35 is also used along the Atlantic Wall, attached to wooden piles located on beaches or at the back of the coastline to prohibit the landing of allied gliders. Two detonators can be installed to prevent bearing.

A version designed specifically for the desert is produced (Tellermine 35 S), equipped with a filter preventing sand from engulfing inside the metal structure. Its operating system serves as a model for Tellermine 42 and Tellermine 43.
