    It does look like a perfect field of fire from the high ground. Looks like the Maginot Line in France with the style of guns turrets.

    Its overlooking a small town of only 17'000 ppl. Think its a 12 cm cannon

    Its a lot of firepower placed there for some strategic & tactical reason.

    Its quite unique for its purpose in the wider geographic region.

    Yes they do look like 5'' guns.......though I did find some fortifications in coastal Finland that had some 11'' guns.

    Is it north or south of the arctic circle?

    Once was the same. But not since many many years. Russians took it.

    Russia took that area aswell. But no.

    You wandered of too far south now. I think the arctic circle can guide you some

    Ha. Now even I got confused..:laugh8:

    When blasting out the bedrock in the mountain they used black powder In order to not cause exessive fracturing

    They could have used ******** which was invented by a famous person who lived in the country you should investigate further.

    Some military historians say it saved our asses here from the Nazis during WW2. They wanted the area because of its iron ore fields..

    The russians never came that way either.. So I guess the scare tactics worked out OK

    Today. We just call NATO in case of emergency

    It was perfect defensive ground 100 years ago......but now a days such fixed defenses are pretty worthless.
