Reinforcing Obstacles

Obstacles specifically constructed, emplaced, or detonated to tie together, strengthen, and extend existing obstacles. Standard obstacles are designed to simplify and expedite planning and logistics support; however, they will be employed in multiples as necessary to conform to a specific target site. They are listed in a guide normally prepared by the division engineer as an enclosure to the division Standing Operating Procedues (SOP) or annex to the Operation Plan (OPLAN). The guide lists all the types of obstacles which the unit may employ and includes a drawing, a bill of materials, and special instructions. (AFPM 3-8-1)
