Barbed wire is a fortification made by stringing barbed wire on a wooden structure. Like other linear fortifications, barbed wire automatically snaps into a line when placed in next to other barbed wire in the editor or Setup Phase.

In CMBN, barbed wire squares are completely impassable to infantry and wheeled vehicles. Barbed wire can be eliminated from a square in several ways in the game:

  • having a tracked vehicle drive over it
  • units with demo charges can blast wire
  • medium or heavy artillery (105mm and larger) will occasionally blow up wire it lands on.
