Hello Sturm78.

You can download my article about 12-inch batteries at Nargen and Wolf islands.
Unfortunately to you - in Russian :(
It is a pity that I do not understand the Russian.... :(
It seems a very interesting article...

Thanks, in any case...

Regards Sturm78

Yes, it's right !
It is 130 mm / 45 cal. M-1913, but original destination of this gun was to equip light cruisers
and / or destroyer-leaders (ex. Moskva , sunk on Romanian mine-fields in Black Sea).
Of course , later when the power of the fleet dramatically decreased, this type of guns was
dismounted and installed on coastal defence.

The original series of numerous photos/negatives showing the progess of constructions at Møvik are kept at the Norwegian National Archives. According to their information, these photos were taken in 1941-42 (all guns were testfired in 1942).

There were only three guns at Møvik (gun 1 never arrived, so the casematte was empty).
