Quite interesting photo Kurt!
Did you know that the mounting used for the MG on your photo came from a French Breguet 19 aircraft??

Here`s another one from "Tobrouks typologie" By Alain Chazette - ISBN 2-9516102-6-2
(Nice booklet with lots of interesting photos :wink: )

Hello Erik.

No, did not know that !

There must have been thousands of "localy modyfications" for mounting all these different types of weapons ?

Hello Chrischa

Not IN Tobruk - but mounted ON a Tobruk !!

Tobruk is the name of the bunkertype :)

CHRISCHA wrote:Erik, are you sure that photo was taken in Tobruk?


"Tobruk" - is a nickname - i think because it was first buildt / in use in Tobruk ( The Town ).

The type is Regelbau = R 58C !

Hope thats the right answer to your question.

Remember to credit your sources if the photos are not your own..... :wink:
Also try to limit the amount of photos taken from the same book to maximum 2-3.
