Sechsschartenturm 35P8 in Trondenes

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 […]

Bunkersite.com update: Bunkeroptik

Besides the tour guide and bunker per locations we have more information for you. Bunkeroptik is one of them. Bunkeroptik is not an official term but it’s obvious, optics used in bunkers. The German fortress design included fortress weapons like the MG-34 on a special mount (Schartenlafette 34) in both armoured turrets and behind armoured […]

Bunker type 634 found in Hoek van Holland

Finally some nice news from Hoek van Holland, at least for the moment. An interesting bunker type 634 for Sechsschartenturm was found at Wn 33H near the Oranjesluis in the Landfront. The bunker’s armoured turret was scrapped just after the war and a part of the roof was demolished. The new dike was built over the […]

Birthday present

Not exactly on my birthday today, but I’ll consider it as a brithday present from the Festung Guernsey guys. 🙂 Last sunday they’ve excavated the Vf bunker for Sechsschartenturm of Stp Reichenberg, Fort Richmond on Guernsey. Buried for years it appeared to be in great shape with some very nice relics. It looks like the […]

Bunkersite.com update: Wn Grüne Düne, Guernsey

One of the most impressive sites in the Atlantikwall to me, is Wn Grüne Düne which protects Rocquaine Bay on Guernsey. Three casemates (2 x Festungpak, 1 x MG in turret) are attached to a huge anti-tank wall which was built over two old Vf casemates for Festungpak. In the back is a very clean […]

Bunker partly destroyed in St Nazaire

Last november, a bunker for machine gun (type 634) was demolished in the French city and former Festung St Nazaire. After the war the Sechsschartenturm was scrapped but the bunker of Stützpunkt Nz 313 was left in place. Due to new housing developments the bunker had to be broken down. The works took 2 weeks and […]
