Hi all,

I have spent any time exploring Italian Cold war fortifications (with the help of Italian colleagues). It is hard to explore the line, which has been almost completely destroyed around 2012-13.

It looks like the only original German Panzernests, which survived the massacre at its original locations, are two pieces at "Sbarramento Pinzano" (photos and exact location here)

I think they had received about 200-300 EUR for the Panzernest (1400 kg of steel) minus costs of demolition and transport to the scrapyard. It is simply stupid.

I do not know, if any Panzernests were saved for the museums. One piece has been removed by the private collector to the garden of restaurant at Bergamo. Does anybody knows more?

I think they do not destroyed German OT-Stahlunterstands, covered with concrete, but they have used bulldozers to cover the bunkers after removing the surface steel parts.

You want to say that Рanzernest in Kiev - is from Novodruzhesk? It's reliable information? If so, then this line on the Donets River - Maulwurf-Stellung

Yes, there was a short note with pictures in one Ukrainian site - digging out a Panzernest with identical damage as that one in Kiev. I guess there was even a short movie?

I will try to ask the Director of the National Museum of Military History of Ukraine history of Panzernest - where he appeared in a museum

Sorry, but the museum there are no documents for this exhibit. Panzernest many decades lay in the backyard of the museum. It's amazing how he was not sent to the scrap.

I've searched once again and here it is:

It would be great , if you could find out exactly, where Panzernest was located...

Hi,

The main question bothers me - is it known who developed, personally, this design? Does she have an author?

Best regards
Konstantin
