Regelbau M272 coastal artillery battery - gun casement with 15 cm TbtsK C/36 naval gun - STL
Excavation for this battery began in autumn 1943. This battery was part of the Atlantic wall. When the Allies invaded France nine months later in June 1944, the four 152 mm. guns had just been mounted in their pillboxes. In addition to the firing positions, there was a fire control bunker located 500 meters forward of the gun positions.
In the days leading up to the invasion, this battery was heavily bombed, but none of the guns were hit. The battery was able to return fire at approximately 0537 on 6 June, 20 minutes before sunrise, when it targeted HMS Bulolo, flagship of Force G on D-day. The ship avoided the fire and the battery then came under heavy fire from four more warships. It was approximately dinner time when the last round was fired from a now defeated battery.
Today, this battery is the only one in Normandy with the original guns still in place in the bunker.
This STL file is designed for FDM Printers and print with a 0.6mm nozzle at 0.3mm layer height. Epic scale will require 0.4mm nozzle at 0.2mm layer height for best finish.
Supports are needed for parts of this model.
The printed model measures approx.:
303mm x 252mm x 132mm @28mm Scale
199mm x 166mm x 87mm @00 Railway scale
151mm x 126mm x 66mm @15mm Scale
50mm x 61mm x 26mm @Epic scale
It is designed for 28mm table top games set in WW2 such as:
Bolt Action, Chain of Command and Konflikt ’47. It can also be used in games such as Judge Dredd, Necromunda and Fallout Wasteland.
Now rescaled to for Flames of War, epic and 00 railways by popular demand.
