Regelbau S174 - Ammunition bunker for schwere batterien

Harpoon
Two of this ammunition bunkers was built at battery Vara in Kristiansand. Both connected to the four 38cm guns by a 60cm railway. The bunker had a capacity for about 200 rounds of ammunition. Each round consists of three parts, shell, powder bag and casing. Most common rounds are 38cm HE L4.5 (yellow) and 38cm APC 4.4 (blue). The small room holds the fuses. Model constructed from drawings, photos and trip to the site. The bunker was not gas proof but hade a coal fired air control systems which controlled temperature and humidity. This is only partly visible in the model as this was modified after the war with more modern systems. One of the S174 at Møvik is restored and is used for art exhibitions.
