No idea where it is, above bunker is ready, 5 cm KwK gun emplacement is already by construction of concrete cover.

Hi,

Here is the concept of the covered 5 cm KwK we can found in AOK7 in a general document about anti-tank renforcement plan in AOK7. Dated 13.5.44.

Hello
1694, 1699 and 1740 are the record number of the folder in the Fest.Pi.Stab drawing archive room.

..And just a tip of Fest.Pi.Stab 27. Typical from bunkerarcheologist to want a bauform-number for everything, it wasn't that a drama at time ! A folder number on the plan was Okay !

hello,
We have always explained (belfra) that these 4-digit numbers as you can see were not bunker types but a detail sheet or file. As always, this person explains that he did not have the documents at that time.
