PostSubject: Goliath Vehicleborne IED (VBIED)   Mon Jun 01, 2009 1:03 am

Video: MPEG4 Video (H264) 480x358 24.98fps [Video]
Audio: AAC 44100Hz stereo 1411Kbps [Audio]

An unmanned miniature tank, the Goliath carried a 2OOlb explosive charge for the destruction of bunkers and armoured vehicles by remote control. It was towed to the area of action on a small trailer.

Early models of the Goliath were powered by two battery-driven auto starter motors, one motor to each track. Later models were powered by a Zundapp two-stroke engine.

The Goliath had a maximum speed of 12 mph and a range of 650 yards. It was guided and detonated by trailing wires, the controller sending electrical signals to vary the speed of each track and so steer the weapon.

The Goliath was not a success, primarily because its tracks were vulnerable to small arms fire. It was used for the most part on the Eastern front, but a few were deployed at Anzio in Italy and in France during the Battle of Normandy.
