Hello

I think that it's a 164 mm Mle 93-96 SF ( 16.4 cm K.M. 93/96 (f) ) , because this gun has a extention
on the end of the barrel and has a iron climbing bars in front of the gunshield , typical of the 13.8 cm
are the round hooks on top of the gun house .

You're right Jos, of course. I thought there was a bigger cap than actual at the end of the barrel.

Hi Jopaerya.

Regarding your post of 11 November 2008, it is possible that your AA gun is a Bofors 40mm AA on Hazemeyer mount.

Hi all,

Can anyone identify this heavy coastal gun and the battery to which it belonged?
I guess it's a 24 or 28cm SK ex naval gun in a open position in France, Pas de Calais.

Could it be Prinz Heinrich??
OK, PH was at Sangatte and not Wimereux.
PH was stationed on the property of two farmhouses, this looks like it.

Hi Ducatim,

Batterie Prinz Heinrich (2x28cm SK L/45)?? It is possible. :|

http://www.atlanticwall.polimi.it/museu ... _rudi1.php

Channel Batteries

In one area, however, things were different. For the planned invasion of the British Isles, the Straight of Dover had to be crossed. In order to secure a future landing and to control shipping through the English Channel, the German navy installed so-called offensive batteries in the Cap Gris Nez area. Construction of these began as soon as July, 1940, even before a ceasefire with France was agreed. The Channel batteries comprised four medium 17 cm batteries and five heavy batteries, of which Batterie Siegfried was armed with modern 38 cm guns that could reach English soil. The guns of Batterie Siegfried (later Todt) were mounted in huge casemates with 3.5 m thick concrete walls and roof. The Oldenburg and Friedrich August were initially placed in open emplacements and casemated afterward. The Batterie Prinz Heinrich, open as well, stayed open until it was moved to Leningrad in 1941. The fifth battery, Großer Kurfürst, received shielded guns which were exchanged for armoured turrets in 1942.

Hi Jopaerya,

It is a very rare gun. 8O I can not help you.

Someone can identify these Russian guns captured by the Germans in Sevastopol.
