Im not sure but i think i saw something like it on a old coastal fort.
And i think(not sure) that it's a base for a searchlight. Were is this place?
All i can think of is a place for search lights.

A: Gun Emplacement
The inside of the foundation there looks like a mount for a pedastal mounted gun. Probably AA, but the foundation is of a good size so this may mean that it is a field emplacement for a gun.
If it was radar the foundation probably would of been more spread out and not as fortified looking.
This is defianlty not a position for a tank turret as there is no room to mount the base of the turret.
If the emplacement is on the coast a 4 to 6 inch gun could of been fitted there.
The foundation looks simalar to the foundations for single naval gun turrets.
Thats a guess from here.
