Thanks forttravel
A very special 502 with enlarged entrance rooms, extra wide external doors and one extra wide entrance. Looks like a hospital bunker (variant)? I have never seen this type anywhere, but some 502s were actually built for ‘Versorgung’.
The Tobruk pit may have been fitted with some kind of turret (or turret-like construction?), but maybe the British guy, who measured this bunker, just concluded that the circular rail might have been designed for a turret?
greetings Lars

Wouldn't be so sure this plan is correct. Entrances are typical 600 series. Show me a German plan or the real thing first.

I would suppose so, but the text gives no details, and there are no recognaisable details in the landscape.
