The subject of this article, Goliath Tracked Mine, has been cut from the final version of a Battlefield game.
The Goliath Tracked Mine (German: Leichter Ladungsträger Goliath), known as Beetle Tanks by the Allies, referred to German unmanned disposable demolition vehicles that were used by the Wehrmacht during World War II. Powered by Sd.Kfz. 302, these single-use vehicles carried 130 or 220 pounds of high explosives and were used to destroy enemy tanks, disrupt infantry formations, destroy buildings or bridges, etc. Beginning in 1942, the Wehrmacht used the vehicle on all fronts. 7,564 Goliaths were produced during the war but they were considered unsuccessful due to their high cost, low speed, poor ground clearance, armor vulnerabilities, and difficult portability. These combined factors prevented a majority of Goliaths from reaching their intended targets.
The Goliath Tracked Mine was a gadget that was intended to be introduced to Battlefield V in the cut 5v5 Gamemode. The gadget's assets were complete though it did not feature any moving animations. It was later removed from the game files entirely in the Battlefest 2019 patch.
