Batterie Todt started life as the "Siegfried" batterie in August 1940. 4 x 38cm S.K.C/34 with a range of 55 km in LP (34 miles) and 42 km as standard (26 miles). Built by the Todt Organization with the 3.Komp./Marine-Pionier-Bataillon 316. The battery was originally designed open emplacements with ships turrets protecting the guns. In 1941 they were all casemated. A total of 12,000m3 of concrete plus steel reinforcement was used. 1942 on the 11th January the battery was at last finished. General Engineer Fritz Todt was killed in a plane crash on the 8th of February 1942 and in his honour the M.K.B. Siegfried is renamed M.K.B Todt.
