HI Arthur

Sounds very logical ,Type B and Type A , not only the panzer 457P01 is
longer but also the F.N. gerat must be longer in the Baustarkte A .

Hello,

of all the nazi fortress weapons, the F.N. (FestungsNahkampfgerät) is likely the most mysterious. As we had one in the B-Werk Besseringen, we are constantly looking for any information. We know how it worked and how it was constructed, we even have a enamel manual for the F.N. in our F.N.-Room. But what we never could find out:

Who is the manufacturer of the F.N.-Gerät???

Does anybody know that?


Greetings from Germany

Hello,

The Stahlring is made by Wa Prüf 5 so there are good chances that is F.N.Gerät too, aren't there ?

Thanks Jos, interesting. Here's a plan for Flammenwerfern in a Regelbau along the Rhine near Isteiner Klotz. Looks similar.

I think the mystery is unravelled. The manufacturer of the F.N.-Gerät should be Minimax as well. There is a document which says that "in case of problems by implementing the F.N.-Gerät Minimax should be contactet". In addition, I got a photo from a german guy who's granddad worked for Minimax. He said, that the photo was taken in the B-Werk Obersimten during installation of the F.N.

Hi Jos,

No this is the top of the M19 turret with it's protective cover (Schutzhaube) resting on top of the crate.
