Dear General Cantacuzino

Thank you very much and I am stunned on the photos you have obtained :o :o The photos were hard to obtained from difficult sources and I didn't see any of them before . Reagrding the remarks of your collegues I still disagree regarding the placement of the German radars in 1943- 1944 in Rumania , some locations mentioned of the links received are correct and some are not

For example the Radar at Campina south and south of Ploesti are missing.

The next questioned I had was where was located in WWII the Tigre -Luftwaffe radio guidance and command center /station at Otopeny ( exact location) and what is it there
instead of it today ?

Can you also post more photos of the Rumania anti aircraft batteries photos 1943-1944 at Campina , Ploesti , Constanza, Buzau and Buchrest ?

What calibers of gunns were on the Caterpillar train in 1943 ? The famous Ebay photo of 1944 Caterpillar is the captured train by the Russians and not the original train used by Germans againist air invasion of the Americans in Ploesti

DCan you post more photos of the Rumanian aa coordination stations ?

Thank you to all replies

Pictures were stillshots from a propaganda movie made in '1943 not only at Ploesti but also at Black Sea shore and Bucharest defence.

The "Tigre" radio guidance and command center was located north of Otopeni airfield. Today on the spot is Otopeni airport (with new buildings) . But i don't know exactly how much bigger was the area for this station. Some closed bunkers were possible still on the place ( a friend of mine told me that before 1989 for the extension of the airport, workers had big problems to destroy the old german command bunkers and some of them were just covered )

It is probably due to the fact that some radars like Wurzburg FuSe 62, were mobile stations so could be moved to different places.

Dear General Cantacuzino

Does anyone has a photo in colour or more aa gun positions of Rumanian Army from 1943-1944 . Was the Rumanian 5th Regiment under the command of the Germans or suveranely under Rumanian officers ?

Are there left any charts of Rumanian / German battallions from Rumanian ?

Hey Private Iceman :D

I have also a question for you. Why you opened a new topic with the same subject as mine?. It is more simple to put all your questions (regarding rom.AA defence) only in one thread.

General Cantacuzino ;)

PS: Victor and Dragos, i think it's better to move all the threads regarding AA defence in only one topic. Otherwise it will be difficult to manage info from "mirror" topics.

iceman asked a specific question about the radars, which belonged to and were operated by Germans. This topic is mostly about the Romanian AA artillery. I think we should leave them apart.

No Victor this topic was intended for all romanian AA defence sistem (not only for artillery) including radars operated by romanians or germans to guide AA guns or aviation. You know that "Tigru" alerted not only germans but all romanian units (AA guns, Aviation units and so on).
But ofcourse we must focus on romanian because is a romanian military forum :P so you can leave it like that.
