The Skutina fortress was designed as six structures over the length of 1,350 metres (two of which were to be infantry bunkers, although only one was ever completed) connected by underground corridors with a narrow-gauge railway line. The planned military crew was to consist of 464 troops. The surface of the fortress was to be protected by a continuous line of anti-tank barriers and each structure was also to have its own anti-infantry barriers.
