24 cm K.(E) 558 (f)

Post by jopaerya » 28 Feb 2010 11:05

Hello

The Kriegsmarine M.A. used 8 railwayguns as coast defence guns , the original French name is "Matériel de
240 mm TAZ Modèle 1893/96 Colonies" these guns could fire rounds with a maximum range of 22.7 k.m.

M.K.B. Ofoten 4./511 in 1944 replaced to M.K.B. Naerbo 6./503 with 4 x 24 cm K.(E) 558 (f) ( Norway )
M.K.B. Batz 4./280 with 2 x 24 cm K.(E) 558 (f) (St. Nazaire) relocated closer to the Landfront Festung St Nazaire .
M.K.B. Prefailles 5./280 with 2 x 24 cm K.(E) 558 (f) (St. Nazaire) plans were found at the site for a Schartenstand .

Photo's = Ebay , Kystfort Forum and BaMa

Jos,

Your two last pictures seem to have been taken in Norway based on the presence of heavy snow on your July picture and the landscape with the steep hill on the latest picture. :idea:
