Barbed Wire Blockade (All Nations)

How about adding a barbed wire fence structure to the game?
I know we have a "German Wall" unit, but I think we should have a bit more variety. Besides, I imagine barbed fence structures were more pervasive in the Second World War than stone walls.
It could function like the Palasades in AOS- A cheap defensive structure.

Well, calltrops (maybe I misspelled) have similar function... We cloud make that one dealing counter damage like spiked wall of elfs in AoF.

Btw, I don't like idea of wall as defensive sructure in ww2 period at all.

calltrops as you call them must be anti tank wall thing, must have huge armor against tank attack type but 0 armor against infantries so they can in 1-2 shots remove them. only riflemen.
This one will be vice versa - counter attack to infantries, can easily hold them but can be one-shotted by any tank.
Also these 2 things will increase usability of mines as well.

I don't think caltrop can be removed by infantry mid battle. How about caltrop is passable by infantries harmlessly? It can be remove by sapper or engineer. Barbed wire will be passable by tanks harmlessly, but infantry can't. Can be remove by sapper and engineer.

Im going to attempt to draw up a design, but if anyone else wants to, feel free.

If this is possible than this will be great.
Also this must be applied for both you, your ally and your enemy.
Maybe make them (caltrops and barbed wires) after completing to become automatically neutral units so you as well will need to remove them via sappers/engeneers. Also it will be easier to make them passable for enemies.

I think the image should be more pixelated. It kinda looks like a painting at the moment. I would also love to have them in more than 8 different positions like AoS wall images that bend around to connect to adjacent walls.

I've changed the name of the topic because the fence structure I suggested was slightly misinterpreted because of the way I used my words. However, I do think that this structure is a very good idea.
Here is the overview of the unit, a summary if you will of all previous posts.
It can be a very cheap defensive structure which dramatically slows down the movement of all infantry that pass through it, as suggested by Samuelch. It also slightly damages all infantry that pass through it. It affects ONLY infantry, and is difficult to remove by all units except engineers and other special units, as suggested also by Samuelch.
The idea of making them neutral upon creation, as suggested by Makazurw32 Is also good, if it can be implemented.
I like the images too.

Cost: 1

HP: 20

Power: 1

Range: 0

Armor: 1/3

Sight: 2

Sounds like a good thing to build.

I will work on the Json I think the armor is to much though.

Makes the armour super high. There is no way to destroy it with bullets or tanks (too low to shoot with cannon). US infantry could get banglalore to remove the barbed wire.
