Italian term or phrase: traditore
Con il termine di traditore è indicata la batteria posta in barbetta (a cielo aperto) o in casamatta, nascosta dall’orecchione e posta nel fianco rientrante del bastione. Aveva il compito di fiancheggiare la cortina e la faccia del bastione attiguo, controllando anche lo spazio antistante del fossato. Nelle fortificazioni moderne si tratta di una casamatta staccata dal corpo principale di una fortificazione, generalmente armata con mitragliatrici e cannoni a tiro rapido, defilata al tiro avversario.
