* Most Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) are designed to target vehicles, since an incapacitated vehicle is not only a sitting duck, but can also be used as bait to set up an ambush against dismounted troops.

** Note that unlike some other example, such weapons ''will'' obliterate a soldier they're fired at. But anti-infantry weapons can kill several.

* As mentioned in the intro paragraph above, a variety of weapons and tools exist to make things difficult for ground vehicles of all sorts. Caltrops, for instance, originally designed as an AntiCavalry weapon, have proved to be rather effective against most vehicles using air-filled tires. They can even be dropped over roads by bombers to stall enemy vehicles trying to travel in the relative safety of darkness, leaving them stuck on the road when the bombers return to bomb them by daylight.
* Another method of countering vehicles is to simply block the path with a sufficiently solid object. This might range from giant caltrops to heavy objects like concrete planters (the latter has the added benefit of being more pleasant to look at once you put some plants in them). This is often used to protect areas from car bombs while still allowing pedestrians to travel freely in public areas.
* When all else fails, [[LowClearance string a solid cable across the path]]. A sufficiently heavy steel cable, properly anchored, will saw a speeding truck in half. The cable can also be rigged to be raised or lowered, clearing the path easily for cleared traffic.

* Though [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anti-materiel_rifle anti-materiel rifles]] aren't a whole lot of good against modern armored vehicles, most military vehicles have minimal or even no armor, making these weapons thoroughly effective at taking them out.
