Camp marmal02 
Bastion inside Camp Marmal near Mazar-e-Sharif, Afghanistan. Note the internal lines of gabions to reduce and compartmentalize mortar effects.  To protect people and equipment from various weapon systems used in combat.  Also, creating a mental sense of security for troops and personnel.

 

This barrier is both a modern gabion used for flood control and military fortification and were developed it in the late 1980s. Made of a collapsible wire mesh container and heavy duty fabric liner, and used as a temporary to semi-permanent dike or barrier against explosions or small-arms. It has seen considerable use in Iraq and Afghanistan.  They can be found around the world most commonly in this size and deployed in many configurations.

Originally designed for use on beaches and marshes for erosion and flood control,[the Hesco Bastion quickly became a popular security device in the 1990s. These barriers continue to be used for their original purpose. They were used in 2005 to reinforce levees around New Orleans in the few days between Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.[3] During the June 2008 Midwest floods 27,000 feet of barrier wall were shipped to Iowa.[4] In late March, 2009, 35,000 feet of barrier were delivered to Fargo, North Dakota, USA to protect against floods.
