A, for me, unknown Sechsschartenturm 35P8 possibly on a 632 (where only three Schartes were used) was reveiled on Kystfort.com. Trondenes peninsula is a real heaven, with of course the famous ‘Adolf’ gun, a 40.6cm naval gun. The now reveiled turret covers the entrance road to the battery. The setup of a Sechsschartenturm covering a […]

In June we posted about two ‘Kleinstglocken’ 24P8 found in the south of France. One of them was obtained by the Association de Sauvegarde du Patrimoine Historique Militaire in Le Wantzenau, near Strasbourg. And what they did was fantastic. They’ve meticulously renovated this turret to a mint condition and put it on display outside their museum, on […]

Again a unique find in France. Last week we wrote about the four M19 cupolas found on Cazaux military airport. Now we can add two more ones to the list.

Yesterday was a good day for Panzerteil enthusiastics. First there was the news about the dug up 90P9. But the major news were the three M19 turrets and one turret for a howitzer found on Cazaux military airbase in southwest France! Yes I said four. One turret is a very rare 73P9 ‘für leichte Haubitze […]

The Channel Islands are still full of surprises. This week a a 6 t. observation cupola was uncovered in Wn Spitzpunkt at Grande Havre. To me it looks like the Kleinstglocke type 90P9 was installed in some sort of small bunker. On Alderney and Jersey the same type of turret was installed in Vf bunkers. […]

Malcolm Amy shows one of his superb replica’s again. After hundreds of grenade clips, ammo boxes and other stuff he now finished the replica top of the M 19 turret, including a periscope. Great job Malcolm, looking good! Read more on Axis History Forum.
