Type L409

The type L409 is a personnel bunker with a reinforced anti-aircraft emplacement on top. The gun-crew would be housed and protected within the bunker and readied for air-defense at a moments notice. The emplacement would be accessible by stairs cast into the earthworks adjacent to the bunker. The bunker features two entrances each covered by its own crenelated machine-gun embrasure and a gas lock to protect the crew from gas attack. It also features an escape tunnel with grenade sump by which the crew might escape should the position be overrun. The anti-aircraft emplacement contains the magazine, allows full traversal of the flak artillery and offers minimal protection to the weapon when crewed.
