Hello,

Very nice shots ! Could it be the mysterious "Samma Kuppel" for heavy MG ?

Best regards

Hello Dirk

Looks these tobruks were used to give only enfilade MG fire i.s.o frontal MG fire .

Polish rkm wz. 28 (Browning) - 7,9 mm lMG 28(p) somewhere in Ringstand. Note fire targets/distances sketch on left side of armour and W.N. code on right side. Is it anybody able to deduct where is it?
