A Ju-88 G-6 night fighter fitted with SN-2 radar which was flown to England after war for technical evaluation.The bulge on top of the cockpit canopy housed the Naxos device for homing on the H2S radar emissions from RAF bombers . The aircraft also has a twin 20 mm cannons weapon pack fitted to its belly.
At Fort Eth (Maginot Line), the devastating effect of high-velocity 88mm
fire was aptly demonstrated when guns firing at close range
blasted huge chunks of steel out of two armoured cupolas
on Block 1. The sides of this cupola were 300mm thick.
A German assault team watches smoke pour out of
Casemate Héronfontaine(Maginot Line), not knowing that the French crew had abandoned it the night before. Unable to take the
casemate by ground assault, the 28. Infanterie-Division
destroyed it by artillery fire
Fort Sarts’s (Maginot Line)armoured turret lost a shooting match with German Flak guns. At least 16 88mm impacts are visible on the
turret. One of the rounds hit the right-side embrasure,
disabling the weapons, and killing a crewmember.
With the turret out of action, the fort’s fall was inevitable.
Immediately after the French surrendered Fort Boussois,
Generalleutnant Hans von Obstfelder, commander of the
28. Infanterie-Division, awarded Iron Crosses to 15 members
of the assault team. Here,two of the awardees rest
next to one of the fort’s combat blocks.
Nice artwork,whatever it’s from.
