viewtopic.php?t=47721
There are pics. And many others you find with a search machine like google.
What do you want exactly?

The pic from karltrowitz shows a Panther turret with his steel plate from a wooden shelter in front of a museum at Pirmasens (Germany). Both is standing on the flat earth. Original this turret was from an wooden shelter.

I got about 20 pics showing this fortification, and the more I look at them more different look one from another, so I want to see more pics to know a little more about this particular.

Thanks

I don't want to dissapoint anyone, but as far as I know, none of R687 was ever found, and it's not sure if any of them was ever built.


Please, let someone correct me, if I'm wrong!!!

regards
Herring

p.s.
To be precise, R687 is a concrete structure, exactly as on a plan above.

Agreed!

No known photographs or documents exist for the R 687!
The high volume of steel and wooden "bunkers" makes me believe that the concrete version took too long time to build, and with little resources, personel shelters would probably be made instead....
