Thanks for posting and sharing these, they look rather cool :thumbup:

So, who used concrete tank obstacles like these? Asking for a friend. . . .

Cool, thanks for the reply. I didn't realise they were that old. I've not seen them in old photos.
I need to read up on these designs now, they're rather interesting, looks like they were done to conserve concrete, although they must have used steel reinforcing.
