Simple models for a defense consisting of a preinstalled mine field possibly defended by an anti-tank weapon are analyzed. This paper used a special Poisson process to model the one or two positions of mines in the mine field. the duel between the anti-tank weapon and offensive tanks crossing the field is modeled with a continuous time Markov chain. Some algebraic solutions and numerical results are obtained for specific scenarios.
