Looks like five guns showing, so probably armament for at least two batteries...

There were only four batteries in Norway/Finland with this gun/carriage combination:
* MAB 3./512 Lyngen (guns mounted september 1942)
* MAB 1./517 Kap Romanow (guns mounted september 1942)
* MAB 1./506 Brettingnes (guns mounted october 1942)
* MAB 6./511 Skrolsvik (guns mounted august 1943)
* MAB 5./516 Stranden (guns mounted august 1943)

Considering the battery-locations, either Lyngen and Kap Romanow, or Skrolsvik and Stranden could be possible candidates for these guns?

Note: Post edited, adding MAB 1./517 to the list.

As far as I know, Cap Romanow's guns were mounted in zwillinglafette.

I agree with Nezar , the B.Cap Romanov had also single 15 cm S.K.C/28 ( post 131 ) viewtopic.php?f=70&t=161944&start=120
The B. Petsamo II had a twin turret with 15 cm S.K.C/28

Hi all,

I found this image on Ebay. I think that the gun is a ex-French 138mm Mle 1910 reused by Germans as 13.8cm KM10(f).
According to photo caption, in south France. Südwall ?? :?

Used any german battery in Südwall this gun ?
In south France, the batterie Coubre-Ost near Gironde also used these guns in Atlantic coast...

Thanks, Jopaerya

This other image is from the same photo serie (Ebay). The gun seems an 10.5cm Erhardt Ubts.u.Tbts.K L45 (Rh).
I suppose that this gun would be used by some batterie near Marseille, also...

I don't have any books about the Südwall to have any reference. Any idea ?

Hello J.L.

Here a photo of the emplacement from Requin ( Gi 09 ) , as you can
see this emplacement on the sides is very different then the photo.
