R600 for a 5cm KwK 38.

Details

5cm KwK 38 was a very handy gun, first fitted to tanks and then as tanks improved they needed a new gun so the 5cm KwK 38 was diverted to coastal defence weapon. It could take out most Allied tanks and certainly damage even large landing craft. The '38' did not have a muzzle break so was a more inferior to the L/60 that did have one.

R600.

Details

This bunker would be covered in sand up to the top. Due to it being an open emplacement, Hitler’s orders to cover gun in concrete meant that a new casemate was built and the gun transferred to the R667 casemate.

R668.

Details

R668 is an eight man bunker but here I wonder if it was used as extra ammunition, if not it would have been a crew room for the gunners.
It has two entrance passages that take you down to the bunker that was sunk into the sand.
