Its in Russia then I take it?
Nope. It was suppose to be anti russian
It never saw any action. But the company who made these are still in int. business
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.
Republic of Karelia?
I'll get back at this tomorrow.....its time for sleep.
Russia took that area aswell. But no.
You wandered of too far south now. I think the arctic circle can guide you some
So it is north of the arctic circle?
No. just A few miles south
would the town be Kuusamo?
You are in the wrong country.
So its not in Finland, Norway or the neighboring republic, near the arctic circle and in country that has been held by both finland and Russia.....am I right here so far?
Ha. Now even I got confused..
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.
Boden Fortress.....thanks Alfred Nobel finished it for me......
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.
