What about the thingums that look like gigantic clatrops? Are they also called dragon's teeth? I was looking for them when I typed in 'tank traps'. -Toptomcat 17:56, 15 November 2006 (UTC)

I suspect that you are thinking of the Czech hedgehog. Gaius Cornelius 19:04, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
I'll add a distinguish template linked to the Czech Hedgehogs. 03jkeeley (talk) 18:56, 20 August 2010 (UTC)

Merger Proposal[edit]

I'm proposing that the short page "Toblorone line" be merged in as it is briefly discussed at the bottom of the page.-- Aronzak (talk) 13:28, 15 June 2009 (UTC)

The page is indeed short, but I'd rather keep it separate, since there is more than enough to say about the specific Toblerone line to warrant a separate article (it's been on my todo list for... way too long, so I won't fight too hard against the merger, but I think they should be kept separate) Schutz (talk) 15:03, 15 June 2009 (UTC)
I suppose the question is does the page describe one specific line or rather the entiore set of Swiss lines. If this is simply a synonym for Dragon's Teeth than yes to a merger; if we are describing a single line than I am not opposed to keeping it separate. HalifaxRage (talk) 12:24, 17 July 2009 (UTC)
Well, the Toblerone line is a way of using them as well as the name given to that stretch of fortification so i would suggest making the article larger or, if(and only if) no-one can find the relevent information, merging it with the dragons teeth page. however, i think it needs a certain amount of prominence that might not be possible if it was part of another article Talker91 (talk) 15:22, 22 July 2009 (UTC)
The term is used as an identification to that specific 10km stretch of fortification line, not as a generic term, I'm against a merge for that reason. MLauba (talk) 14:27, 9 August 2009 (UTC)
Oppose. As previous editor noted, "Toblorone line" is a specific fortification line. "Dragon's teeth" is a generic term. Gaius Cornelius (talk) 16:33, 11 August 2009 (UTC)

Pop ups[edit]

...and has roadways rigged with teeth that are ready to 'pop up' and complete defensive lines that stretch past the roadways themselves

I removed this line as I found no evidence of such while searching - and without evidence this seems more like Sci-Fi or at the very least, uncorroborated fact. Another article on fortifications, etc, mentioned that despite rumors of Switzerland pre-booby trapping railroads, bridges, highways, etc to cut them off in case of invasion, this is fiction rather than fact.

Question? Archived sources still need to be checked
