|French term or phrase: clôture antiroquette|
|On peut employer cet abri comme PO en lui donnant des embrasures et des clôtures antiroquettes et antimortier.|
Any reference I find to 'anti-rocket' is not an original English document so I fear it is the literal translation. I think 'anti-missile' is the best but I'm not sure if antimissile and antiroquette are the same thing.
Any help from someone who has come across this before and is familiar with it is much appreciated.

Agree with Albert about rockets and missiles not being the same.
Also agree that "shield" is highly likely.
Also found one ref to "mesh" - depends what your "clôture" is made of - in a Northern Ireland context.
My findings :
PREMIER CANON ANTI-ROQUETTE AU LASER
Avec plusieurs mois de retard, la firme américaine TRW Inc. a réalisé avec succès le 26 juin la première démonstration de tir au moyen d'un laser tactique à très haute énergie, sur le site de son centre d'essais de Capistrano, en Californie. (...). [Total : 349 mots].
“…The system consists of a pointer-tracker, a laser, and a battle management system. It is being developed by TRW, two other U.S. contractors — Ball Aerospace & Technology and Contraves Brashear Systems — along with four Israeli firms. Israel expects to field the first anti-rocket laser unit later this year in northern Israel.
As part of a memorandum signed by officials from both countries in July 1996, the lasers are supposed to have built-in software limiting their range.
The system is designed for knocking out 122mm Katyusha rockets, which have ranges of several miles, and mortar and artillery. The agreement also restricts transferring the technology to other countries….”
“Missile tests are not uncommon in Russia, but today's came a week after President Vladimir Putin threatened to stack multiple nuclear warheads on Russian missiles as a countermeasure to a proposed U.S. anti-rocket shield…”
“Nearly every police station and army base in Northern Ireland is protected by metal
walls, anti-rocket mesh and airlock-style controlled entry systems.”
