The official AHF Fortifications & Artillery quiz thread

Postby Marcus Wendel » 31 Aug 2005 09:11

We've had several different quizes running here in the forum for a while with great success and now that this new section has been opened, I'm starting one here too.

The rules are very simple:
The first one to post the correct answer to a question, posts a new question (must be on the fortifications & artillery used by the Axis) and so on.

Hallo Kurt!
You`ll get it even if you are on thin ice :wink:

Its a loading trainer for several types of guns, not just the 10,5
The Germans called them Ladeübungskanone.

Hello
Im on thin ice as i dont know really. But a L479 ? at Douvres ? Perhaps the model is at Musée radar Douvres, Douvres-la-Délivrande ?
If wrong, still i had a good time looking for the answer, and now i have learned something about Douvres/Distelfink.

Hello Kurt and Jop.
Had to go the long road to figure what it was, but with the use of google and search function in the forum, everything is possible.. :)
Im sorry to say that i cant come up with anything right now, so perhaps Kurt can come up with another one ?
