After all that was the standard WP practice .

Hallo osutacincizecisidoi,
According to the informations taken from the Romanian military media, the 50th AntiAircraft Missile Regiment "Andrei Mureseanu" unit established on June 30, 1989 in the Cluj city area, equipped, according to the standards of the Warsaw Pact at that time with 9K33M3 "OSA-AKM" surface-to-air missile systems. This regiment was directly subordinated to the 4th Army Command in Cluj.
I can't say with certainty whether the other 3 AA Mobile Missile Regiments (all with 2K12 Kub mobile systems) were or were not subordinated to the other 3 Army Commands (Buzau, Bucuresti and Craiova) but is likely to be so.

I saw two artillery pieces at Izvorul Nou Park's entrance in Bucharest.
I think Zis-2 57 mm AT guns. Were those guns in Romanian Army's post World War 2 inventory?

Yes, each artillery battalion from all infantry regiments had 18 pieces. They were quite common. Nowadays, they are frequently used as "gate guards". You can find out more about the Romanian Cold War artillery here: http://www.rft.forter.ro/17_bibvirt/pdf/00...-si-imagini.pdf (in Romanian, but the pics and titles are quite eloquent.)

This is more of a post-Cold War question but this is the closest thread I could find. There is a miltary/coastal base north of Navodari, next to Corbu. You can see it easily on Google Earth. Does anyone know what regiment or battalion occupied that base? I am using the past tense because I think it is now deactivated (dezafectata).
Or perhaps I'm wrong? Is it still active? If, so, by which unit? It looks pretty cool on Google Earth, you can see the gun/rocket emplacements, berms, etc...

Thanks in advance...

That place hosted a battery of 8 guns KS-30, 130mm used as coastal guns since 1965. There are another two very similar installations - one at Capu Midia, just west of the oil refinery tank farm and another south of 2 Mai, on the brink of the sea and eroding fast.

Don't know which unit operated them, but KS-30 were retired from use in the early 90's and the unit operating them disbanded.

I think you're talking about this facility, right?
TRAINING CAMP AND SURFACE TO AIR FIRING RANGE "Gl. bg. Ion BUNGESCU" - CAPU MIDIA

It's still active, it actually fools a lot of tourists during the summer in thinking there is a thunderstorm coming. :))

There are no more KS-30 guns of 130mm, no the artillery units of the Navy.

Yes, that's what I said too.

The place mabadesc was talking about - next to Corbu - is here: 44.388820 28.719518
That's indeed the Capu Midia SAM and AAA range, Mircea is right.

The one I was talking about - the former coastal battery - is this:
44.352847 28.690102

The battery that used to "frighten the tourists" is closer to "Hanul Piratilor" (and indeed, it used to make a lot of noise ;) )
The co-ordinates are 44.17'55N 28.37'07E

There are also a four old wartime gun emplacements in the city itself, on the bluff close to the loghthouse, overlooking the harbour.
The co-ordinates are 44.09'31N 28.38'00E

A new unit (it isn't new actually, but I didn't know about it before) is the 7th Tank Brigade "Muscel" from Slatina, who had 3 Regiments: 3rd Mechanized Regiment in Caracal, 27th Tank Regiment in Bascov and 1st Artillery Regiment in Slatina. I remember reading somewhere that this Brigade was unique in the Romanian Army, and was sometimes mistaken for a Division, some were claiming that Romania would have had three tank divisions: the 6th, the 7th :o and the 57th.
