ITEM: Czech Hedgehogs- Anti Tank
AVAILABLE FOR: TV & Film / Photo Shoots, Events & Displays
CONDITION: Very good
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION : The Czech hedgehog is a static anti-tank obstacle defence, made of metal angle beams or I-beams (that is, lengths with an L- or H-shaped cross section). The hedgehog is very effective in keeping light- to medium tanks and vehicles from penetrating a line of defense; it maintains its function even when tipped over by a nearby explosion. Although Czech hedgehogs may provide some scant cover for infantry, infantry forces are generally much less effective against fortified defensive positions than mechanised infantry.
