MKB 5/510 Brömneset
MKB (Marine Küsten Batterie) 5/510 is situated directly outside Bodø in Nordland. It was operational in October 1940 and was armed With 4 15cm guns with a range up to 16000 meter. I believe it was ww1 uboat guns that was used at this fortification. There was also 5 20mm FlaK guns, a 5cm KwK a 4,7 PaK , 4 searchlights and 2 mortar positions. In addition there was a Freya radar and several Mg positions , fixed flamethrowers and close defence trenches. Several different Regelbau is scattered around the hill and inside the hill is a large bunker system. A group of local enthusiasts has restored parts of the complex and the bunkers inside the hill is often used for concerts , parties and similar. I am sorry for the somewhat blurry pics , but I am playing around with a new camera and hasn`t mastered it completely yet.
This gun was moved to here from another fortification in 1947.
