A mobility kill (or M-kill) in armoured warfare is a weapon or vehicle that is immobilized, or the act of immobilizing such a target. Tanks and other armoured fighting vehicles can be immobilized by damage to their engines, tracks, or running gear. Because of the mobile nature of modern warfare, such a vehicle is often effectively useless on the battlefield, but it may be salvaged, or repaired and brought back into action quickly.[citation needed]

It is claimed that the Wehrmacht lost more Panther tanks as mobility kills than as catastrophic kills in World War II.[1]
