Panzerhindernis (or Panzer Hindernis) is German for "Armor Barrier" or "Tank Barrier".
- It is primarily used by Vita in A's.
- Panzerhindernis can be cast by all playable practitioners in The Battle of Aces and The Gears of Destiny when they perform cross-range blocks.
- Vita casts it briefly in StrikerS to demonstrate the 3 types of defensive spells to Subaru Nakajima.
Note that the defensive spell cast by Signum in A's (ep.7) is Panzergeist, despite the same visual effect. In The MOVIE 2nd A's, when confronting Fate Testarossa, Signum also uses an unnamed barrier-shaped defence that looks the same as Defenser Plus in the movie. It is not known whether the spell is Panzerhindernis or again the concentrated arrangement of Panzergeist.
Normally, the spell generates a dome-shaped barrier similar to Protection, but it also have a "complete defensive version" which, abandoning attacks or movements, defends in every direction with a polygonal barrier (c/w Midchildan Sphere Protection).
