I imagine the weight alone would be a huge waste compared to an equal amount of steel material. But I guess if you’re just setting it up in a defensive ambush position, it’s not a huge factor.

Wasn't Germans the only ones who used magnetic mines as an AT role? Making for example zimmerrit reduntant and a typical example of German overingenuity

Reading around the internet, it is rather a protection against small arms /antitank rifle (a cheap way to add more protections)
Zimerit was used against magnetic mines
