Not from WW2, but I found this ex-French Blockhouse built in the 1940/50's (in Vietnam) interesting...

Re: wood used???

Also I am surprised by another picture posted on the Russian thread:

http://ostpanzer.com/forum/index.php?s= ... st&id=1495

A Panther turret on a WOODEN structure. How can it actually fire or rotate? The back force when a shoot is done would crack the wooden structure easily. Can anyone explain this, why such a "thing" was built?! Also thanks for the thread Sanders. There are great pictures on that forum topic you posted. 8)

Thanks in advance

Gregory :)


Wish I could pull up your link but i can't. Could you post that picture.
One picure I know of with a panther turret is a picture of the "small turret" for a Panther 2 at a British proving range, that may be it . However more common than that, Turrets are mounted on cribs at times for maintenance, and some crew training is done in statically set turrets. Been there, done that.

This Churchill turret was put on tobrouk in Le Havre, plateau d'Epremesnil. It is a picture originally from Service Historique de La Marine (Records of the French Navy), wich had been often published in many books. In september 1944, the British troops, equiped with Chirchill tanks, attaqued the Fortress of Le Havre in this area.

Sébastien

Hello All

It's was for me very strange why there was no Tobruk
for the turret of the Pz.Kpfw. IV , but there is one planned
the 250 .

and captured tankturrets , but as you said not
