Hello everyone, and welcome to my 4th installation in my bunker safari thread series. I realise most of you that are here now were not around when I posted the original threads (found here: http://forums.guru3d.com/showthread.php?t=136724 and here: http://forums.guru3d.com/showthread.php?t=138464), but there seemed to be a certain amount of interest around the topic back then, so today while being bored (I have a week off uni) I thought I'd create another thread with pictures from Festung Norwegen, the Norwegian part of the Atlantic Wall that the German Nazi regime created all along the coast of Europe. Short Wiki quote: I may add that the pictures are nearly 3 years old and of questionable quality (taken with my mates shaky HP digicam - we're better suited today!). I don't know why I didn't post these when they were fresh, and I don't know if there's any interest for it today, but hell, it's the pub, it doesn't matter, right? There's also been a fair amount of threads around other things people are interested in (cars, bikes etc), so I thought I'd share my other passion apart from computers; bunkers/fortifications and WW2 history! So anyway, on to the pictures. This was the first sight that "greets" you when you arrive at Batterie Laukvik. It's the living quarters and HQ of the soliders stationed here. The area is shaped like a hill, and all along the side facing away from the sea, there's holes like this one. The entire hill is made hollow and was used for storing ammunition to the guns this fortress housed. All around the area are small regelbau bunkers used for various things. This is the inside of one of them. As you can see, the walls are painted white. In one of these regelbaus, we found some crates. As you can see, they're dated 1927. The outside of said regelbau. Notice the doors. Laukvik was equipped with 6 x 15,5 cm K416(f) guns, with a range 17 000 m. It was built to defend a narrow fjord called "Folda". This is one of the 6 mounts for the guns. Each gun emplacement was connected to the underground storage rooms for ammunition. This is where the ammo came up. They used an elevator system that I will show you later. All these guns needed a view post, and this was put on top of the hill with great view of the entire fjord. Close up of above command bunker Inside the command bunker View from the command bunker. Now obviously, all the gun emplacements relied on information from the command bunker. This was done with a telephonic communication system. All the wires led up to the command bunker. Air cleaning system. To this unit there was attached filters, so in a case of gas attack, they could still breathe clean air. Command room.
