The project includes both artificial and natural obstacles (swamps, rivers and forests). Anti-tank ditches are to be strengthened by the so-called dragon teeth. This is the common name of a fortification composed of reinforced concrete blocks in the form of a truncated pyramid.

According to Colonel Kaspars Lazdins from the Latvian army, if a conflict occurs, the “dragon teeth” will be supplemented with minefields.
