Hello,

Regarding the installations in Pantherturm - it looks like socket in Ostwallturm is for Kopffernsprecher. The one in the instruction is not identical, but very similar. It would mean, that in fortress version of Panther turret there was used a field telephone, and not a radio set typical for Panther tanks, what anyway makes sense.

That's new to me too Jopaerya. An Italianate building behind, but Gustav or Gothic Line? Any more clues? Summer, so seems more likely to be Gustav to me.

It's flat area, I guess it's between Pontecorvo and Aquino, so Hitler / Senger
