This looks like a Regelbau 105, maybe in the Fischbach-Area near Pirmasens.

The bunker in post #670. Compared it, and only the 117 has two entrances, a close defence room and the one air inlet in this position.
117 in the Westwall or Atlantikwall?

I think this R 117 can be found on the Atlantikwall - we can see the typical armor plate, the raised cover and the typical camouflage paint. We can't find that on the Westwall …

All in the Saarlautern area, the last photo should be WH 672 at Fraulautern, Regelbau 115b with Dreischartenturm:

Thanks for the identiification.

"Schweighofen Pfalz", some of the photos are B-Werk? Btw is there something like a "B-Werk catalogue" with plans or are the informations scarce? I know there are plans for Ostwall Panzerwerke, but Westwall?

Not much known. There are several plans in Der Westwall by Bettinger & Büren. These come from several documents in Bundesarchiv. The B-Werke in the Oberotterbach area are a little bit bigger than the B-Werk Besseringen but have the same configuration.

The photos are from the Otterbach-Area, but we don't know, which B-Werk this is.
The other photos show a Regelbau 3 and a Sechsschartenturm. They are not connected but there is a wall between the the bunkers to cover the entrances. They are WH 215 and 218, north of Steinfeld.
