Some photos from a German battery, located in Rafina in east coast of Attika. The battery protect the port of rafina and placed there 2 or 4 naval turrets (some sources says that turrets come from France).

Hello All

The bettung at Raffina looks to me a "Schwere Drehbettung " for a Heeres Küsten Battreie used for
15.5 cm K. 405, 416 , 418 and 420 (f) and 12.2 cm K 390 (r) and K.H. 433/1 (r) , most guns I have
seen in the H.K.B. in Greece are the 15.5 cm K. 416 (f)

This photo is from "Bataria" Battery in North Kefalonia (1950). I think the gun it's the same with this in photo (message by jopaerya on 17 Jun 2009).

What type is this gun?

After war start with Italians 4x12.7 cm/ 45 SK C/34 were put in Preveza and another 4 in Kerkyra. This guns were Naval guns for the two destroyers of Vasilefs Georgios that were to be or were being build. They might have been moved if not destroyed.
