These schemes and descriptions were created by intelligence data prior to the offensive of the Soviet troops in Manchuria and are very incomplete.
The exploration did not reveal all the structures, not quite accurate information on the Japanese fortified areas.
Then, according to the experience of military operations and on the results of research on destroyed fortifications, other reports were written, more detailed and accurate.

Of course. And those post-war reports probably even had good photos.

Alas, this is all I've found for now. If you will post better sources on Japanese fortifications, I'll be very grateful.

В этой теме мы когда-то выкладывали имеющиеся у нас данные и отчеты по японским укрепрайонам. Есть и фото и схемы.
Еще на ресурсе Waralbum есть фото по советско-японской войне, включая аэрофотосъемку и снимки объектов фортификации.

Из той же серии снимков, как вот эти укрепленные ангары аэродромов в районе г. Муданьцзян

Большое спасибо Вам. Я даже и не знал о существовании этой темы.

For non-Russian speakers I'd like to recommend above link - it has a lot of info about various Japanese fortifications, including photos.

Does anyone know the composition of the Manchukuo/Japanese garrison at the nearby settlement of Fuyuan? This book does mention a garrison there, but does not provide details: https://books.google.com/books?id=klCQA ... uo&f=false

There were no Japanese garrisons at Fuyuan. The Japanese were only as follows.

The sentry from 5th Company of 367th Infantry Regiment (23 men)
The lookout from 11th Air Information Regiment (8 men)

Besides them, there was Fuyuan Border Police (about 30 Japanese and 60-70 Manchurian).

I see, I didn't realize the force there was so small. From the way that book described it, I expected a more substantial garrison type force. Thanks for your help.
