One of the few Westwall bunkers adopted into the Atlantikwall. When used in the AW, this bunkers are usually only found in flanking positions, not facing the enemy direction (Like seen in the westwall)

Hello
Very interesting tread, and great pictures !!
Some questions.
For those of us that cant see the difference in a "ordinary" bunker or a "regelbau", any tips ?
I doesnt want to add pictures here with a question everytime...is this a regelbau ?
Perhaps posting them other places first with that sort of question ?

I suggest you use "The ultimate fortification thread".
My thought was to keep this "as clean as possible" to get a better overview!

Basically the same as the R636, but the R636a has a roof over the rangefinder emplacement, and a little difference in the arrangement of the rooms inside.

OK, a small contribution. We have pictures of nearly all Regelbauten except for some rare only-in-Norway types ;)
They're all sorted and in their own folder. I'll add those photos another time. Now some pics from Holland and France.

-R112 neu
-Machinegun casemate
-Stp Gr Breskens

The last remaining Sechsschartenturm in Breskens, part of the Landfront defences.

-Machinegun casemate
-Festung Dünkirch

Beautiful casemate located at the harbor.

-Landfront Vlissingen

One of the finest Regelbauten for PAK, in my opinion.

Image

Casemate for the MG. Again as with the 631 a lot of concrete for a small weapon.

Image

The last intact 644 in the Atlantikwall?

Image
