Wright! But the links dosen't work properly :? at the time I browsed that page.
This page is reported to have over 7000! :D of photos from Polish II Corps in Italy-due to the fact that it is hard to find quickly desired photos I'm going to put rest of them (with second Panther-stellung but this time ordinary Panther tank digged in) soon.

Anyway If someone would like to browse->http://www.cultura.marche.it/cultura/mo ... no_pol.asp

Hello All

In a report from the Armeepionier A.O.K. 1 from 1944 , I found that
the Germans planned and build also OT-Stahlunterstande in the Pyrenaën.
I have 2 questions , it looks that there are OT unterstanden with Pzt
(panzerturm) and without ( only a hideout ) is that correkt ?
Beside the Ostwall , Berlin , Italie and the Westwall are there other places
were the Pantherturm were build ?? Atlantik wall ??

Beside the Ostwall , Berlin , Italie and the Westwall are there other places
were the Pantherturm were build ?? Atlantik wall ??
Some informations based on various articles:

50(?)-Italy:Rimini,Santa Lucia,Pedimonte San Germano,Monte Gridolfo,Foglia river...

30(?)-eastern front]:Breslau 8(?),Königsberg 4(?),Berlin 20(?) Sczecin 1(more?)...

150(?)Western front+Sigfried line:1 in Gerstfeldhöhe(more?)...

Atlantikwall-???


Units:
Italy: Festung-Pantherturm-Kompanie 1209, 1210
Germany: Festung-Pantherturm-Kompanie 1204, 1205, 1206

If that is a report not plan for future it give present state-mayby pioniers didn't have much time to finish their job...


I don't trust those numebrs-Berlin 20 emplacements? On photos taken after fifghts only few are visible,what about the rest of them?

According to eastern front-only Szczecin example is known to me (except those from Berlin) but possibly some of them were used aalso along Oder river.
Still more questions then answers :?

Thanks Sander-excellent shoot :D

Notice how smooth it was finished-I can hardly see a steel plate under the turret.
