The photos do indeed show Saarbrücken. They show the construction of Tunnel 1 Saarbrücken, Moltkestraße and maybe of the other tunnels nearby. The tunnel was never finished.

Hello,

Would anyone know when did the 20p7 switch from Zeiss to Busch episcopic side optics ?

Best regards

Between 1936 and 1937 on the basis of the remaining 20P7. The remaining 20P7 made by Krupp do both have Pz.B.W.F. 2 and also the remaining 20P7 made by Hörder Verein in 1936. All the remaining 20P7 made after 1936 do have Busch optics.

Looks like a Regelbau B1/5 oder B1/7 (in Variation a) in the Saar Region near Saarburg-Konz
Left Side is the River Saar, i think... could be "Kanzem" on the left side, "Wiltingen" on the right...

Perhaps "MU 121"

Your guess was very close!

The picture of the bunker with the lovely camouflage show bunker N39002 near the village of Filzen (N39 means built in 1939).
It's a Regelbau 107 with it's two 7P7 not facing 180°towards each other but turned by 32°each.
With this modification, the firing range was optimated. You can also see on the Map, that the orientation of the fiting directions is not 180°.
Turning the 7P7 was such a common modification that they even draw a buidlung instruction.
