Mine Sweepers are used by the Imperial Guard and are attached to vehicles. Sometimes they are large flails fixed to drums in front of the vehicle which strike the ground and detonate any nearby mines, others are massive dozer blades or large steel rollers. These often prevent the vehicle of from mounting more conventional dozer blades.[1][2][4]

Man-portable mine sweepers, refered to as Sweeper Brooms may also be carried by individual Guardsmen. These are magenetically sensitive wands attached to heavy backpacks and are to utilised locate mines and booby traps, rather than preemptively detonate them.[3]
