HKustArtRgt and HKustArtAbt are German Army coastal defence Regiments and Battalions.
Originally coast defence was part of the Kriegsmarine's duties. However given the conquest of Norway and France/ Low Countries there was a much greater need for coastal defence and to meet this need Army coastal defence units were created.
