I found a 50mm KwK at Lista, Norway

Post by Snorre » 18 Nov 2002 18:47

Hi,

During my visit to Lista this weekend, I found a 50mm KwK in a bunker. I have not heard about this one before.

I will post more images and info about it soon, both here and at BunkersWeb.

Here is a preview.

Best regards,

Good work Snorre!

This is good news, too bad that you force me to drive 160 kilometres to see it!
I think this is a R-667, but measures must be taken to ensure that it isn`t a sk structure. It is in much better state than the 5cm KWK we discovered at "MKB Bismarck" earlier this year.......

Well, I have 450 km to drive 8O

I think it is a R667 and not a SK (see photo below)

Yes i have. Actually i live nearer you than you can ever imagine. When looking out of window i can see the lights of Myllykoski Paper. :lol: :lol:

Still, i think our Norwegian friends have better off. I am an arty fan, and those coastal-arty batteries would be really nice to examine... Well, maybe on some holiday.

No. I have missed that so far. I know that there would be a 6" Canet to see.

With good binoculars and weather Someri is clearly visible.
You know me, do I you?
