I looking for a tag or description to pointout a barrier for tanks on top of a dike. Its the replacement for a tank_ditch, a ditch in a dike wont do. Tag info gives no results on fi tank_barrier. Its made of a concrete basement with diagonale holes to secure the steelbars, pointing in the direction where the enemy is expected to approache.

A Jpeg of it could help. In Answers and Questions the sixth icon along top allows you to paste an image.

Hi Andy, I dont have pics but coordinates will do, 5.07700-5233944 or 5.14142-5228259 and near Utrecht 5.14000-52.11808. At all three places have pics in Google. The construction is a concrete basement with steel bars lowered into if necessary. The first coordinates pin point the most impressive excample. Lmk.

Please don't use or suggest upper-case tags.

I would follow Andy and tag it; barrier=fortification, historic (instead of historical)=tank_barrier, armored_vehicle=no, name=spargel, material=steel / concrete, period (instead of WWII)=1914 - 1918, demolished=yes, operator=France Greetz
