Hello All

The "Bettungsschiessgerüst" C.39 was used for the 38 cm and 40.6 cm, so that would make no difference.
There are photo's known from Bat Todt from 1940 with sandbags because of the concrete turret was not ready yet,
so I would go for Batt. Todt .

Regards Jos

Later in the war extra steel plates were added in Todt to close the gaps between the turret and the bunker.

Nobody for my last image ?

Well, here another image from Ebay. I think a Romanian coastal gun.

According to information on the net it could be Mircea battery at Cape Midia (4 x 152mm Obuhov guns)
or Tudor battery at Tataia (3 x 152mm Armstrong guns). Any idea ??

From the shape of the shield as well as what little of the breech that is visible I would say these are 152 MM Armstrong guns. Enclosed is a pic of the battery. i do not remember the source.

Thanks, ROLAND1369.
Yes, the gun seems the same. Do you know the origin of these guns ? ex-naval guns or coastal defence guns ?
Any idea about the exact model of these Armstrong guns?

The 152 mm Armstrong guns (QF 6-inch 40 calibre naval gun) were taken from Romanian destroyers NMS Mărășești and NMS Mărăști during their modernisation. It was the original armament of those ex-Italian ships (Cannone da 152/40 A Modello 1891). The guns were replaced at 1926 by modern twin 120 mm guns. The Armstrong guns were send to Romanian coastal defence.

Thank you very much for your information, Ondrej Filip... :wink:
So, the Romanians had 6 of these guns from NMS Mărășești and NMS Mărăști (ex-Sparviero and Nibbio)
