A "small" "discovery"

Post by Bo2 » 12 Jun 2011 12:14

Bonjour à tous
I could enter on an absolutely prohibited ground to the common run of people, I come back home with some small photos
The first one
Image Image Image Image Image Image

the second
Image Image Image
on the sockelring
Image Image

third
Image Image Image Image Image

fourth
Image Image Image Image Image Image Image
I can't see nothing on the fourth, but it rained and we were been short by the time because of the place

All these things at the same place on a square 2,5 km x 3.
For the second and third, Jos will be able to explain better than me in English or Dutch what it can be

Unbelievable indeed. Can I have one? :lol:
First one is a 428P01 too I think. JF did you measure the thickness? The 428P01 is 290mm, the 424 is 250mm.

if you have the material to come in France, to raise and transport the 2 and the 3, they are with you !

AND IT IS NOT A JOKE !!!!!!!!!!!!

If you are really interested, contact me, I would put to you in relation to the adequate service. Attention, the negociations should be done with an elevated level (can be a consul and/or military attache of embassy)

Unfortunately I don't have room for another cupola ;)

How did you know about these turrets, any idea where they're from? It looks like they've never been built into bunkers.
Was the U-Boot bunker Bordeaux ever prepared for M19 turrets?

Does that mean that the info on this page is incorrect? And was the 39P8 ever build?

You got me there Mark :wink:
I really have to update the Panzeratlas some time, but I'm still thinking about a new presentation concept.
But you're right, the 428P01 is Baustarke A1 and not A! So it's 'only' 290mm instead of 420mm.

Quite like the site the way it is. Been using it as a reference on copulas and the sort though, so an update would be nice. But what about the 39P8?
