Bunker for balloon defences, in Wyprawa?
No it isn't

It is German ammo factory in Krzystkowice in Poland.It belonged to Dynamit-Aktien Gesellschaft vormals Alfred Nobel & Co.It is reported that except production of ammo also there has been tested new models of projectiles.
On the phots is seen a large 'bunker'-actualy a concrete tank-probably for chemicals used in production,but as always with WWII objects it is linket to Vrils(?!!!) and other UFO activity.I guess it is made because of both:it's unusual and beatiful shape.
It is not typical fortyfication object (as many of us is attached to) but if someone is interested in so-called urban exploring then it will be very interesting.This factory has it's own undiscovered underground part-major part behind military unit.

Here are some more photos to see:

Hi All

It is called a Federpuffer , and was used for the turttle-back gunshield of the
10,5 cm SK C/32 and 8,8 cm , on the Federpuffer the shield could rotate with the
gun in every angle and also adjust the pressure inside and outside the turret .
