This type has a rim at enemy side. It prevents an easy climb over the top. This top is shaped as a triangle in order to counter quick placing of demolition charges. On unstable soil this wall was supported by steel anchors. It's a very common wall with mostly Schartes for rifle or Mg. Flanking Pak guns had to stop remote controlled carriers with explosives.
