The Mobile Land Mine (originally named Beetle) was a British World War 2 remote controlled tracked explosive device.[1] It was wire guided and powered by two electric motors.[1]

The Mobile Land Mine was designed by Metropolitan-Vickers 1940.[1] Among other trials a Mobile Land Mine was waterproofed and equipped with floats allowing it to be used against landing craft.[1]

The design was not a success and only 50 were built.[1]
