Fort Ferte on the Maginot Line
Pic 2 is the rear entrance to one of the bunkers.
Pic 3 is inside a main firing camber. There are 2 guns a 47mm and a twin HMG. The 47 can be quickly swapped for a second twin HMG.
Pic 4 is inside showing a dividing wall blasted away by the blasted of explosives the German pioneers dropped down a breached cupolla.
Pic 5 is a twin 47mm pop-up turret. It had been hit while being raised or lowered & jammed half-way up by a shell hit, then the pioneers finished the job. You see the marks of charges impressed into the steel on the LH side.
