Defense – Obstacles Part V: More On Slowing The Threat Down on Roads and Trails.

I’m sorry it’s taken so long to get this next entry up but life has been eating my time up. Anyhow in this entry we’re going to look at a couple of other ways to “block” a road and slow down traffic. Now when I write blocking a road remember the some of the basic tenants of obstacles. A determined and capable threat is only going to be slowed by an obstacle. Obstacles can also slow your exit from the area down as well if you have to shag out. In this entry we’ll focus once again on stopping what will probably be the first type of threat we’ll likely encounter – a four wheel drive pickup full of dirtbags that have expanded beyond the picked clean towns to raid rural areas. Also note these obstacles are calculated based on the performance characteristics of an HMMWV which is really representative of a good 4×4 pickup.

First up is a standard pole driven into the road. This can be something as simple as a section of telephone pole, section of tree, or even a piece of railroad rail. And as always the red arrow represents the direction of threat travel.
