bunker K-S 32 „Na růžku“ - historical
It is an independent two-bell structure facing both sides and marked as IInd level in terms of armour resistance. This particular infantry bunker was concreted between 7 December 1936 and 14 December 1936 as part of the building sub-sector 5./III. – Mladkov.
cubature of the installation is 1570 cubic meters.
the upper floor two shooting areas were placed in which you will find the
main armaments – a double heavy machine-gun type 37, 7.92 mm. calibre (weapon
M) and a fortress cannon, 47 mm. calibre which was mounted on a joint gun-carriage
with a heavy machine-gun type 37, (weapon L1). These main weapons´ firing range
was aimed towards K – S 33 to the left and K – S 31 and 30 to the
right. The embrasure of these main weapons was torn out by the Wehrmacht in
1939. In the upper floor you will also find entrances to the armoured bells
which served to observe the surrounding area and also to cover it with firepower.The
left armoured bell was armed with a light machine-gun type 26, 7.92 mm. calibre
(weapon N) and the right one with a heavy machine-gun type 37, 7.92 mm. calibre
(weapon D). The installation was further equipped with four light machine-guns
type 26 which protected the immediate surroundings including the peripheral
obstacles. To serve to defend the diamond ditches and rear walls three grenade
chutes were introduced. On this floor one would also find the munition store,
the sleeping quarters of the non-commissioned officers, the commanders´room and
the telephone operators.
the lower floor the diesel (fuel) plant was installed to help to produce
electrical energy as well as the machine room to ensure fresh air was available.
Further, soldiers´ accommodation was found here along with the food store, a
well, the land telegraphers´ office and toilets and washrooms.
