it looks like the barbetts for german naval artillery. The same you can see in Hangstolm / Kristiansand for fencing the Skagerak.
The construction contains out of three rings.
Center is the main foundation for the amoured turrent. Ring two seperates the center from the outer ring. In the outer ring the ammunition was stored and kept only in the turrent on demand.

Sorry, but there is no flying saucer in this plan.

cheers
Kenny

The “atlantic wall” is full of sites like this.

Well, Germans built it.

Not rocket science his one. One only has to look at the natural rain catchment pockets around the rocky plateau and peninsula to see more of this.

As already pointed out, there are actually 4 readily observable ones (the one not imaged in this series is in MUCH better condition and not often submerged unlike the rest). There is also a fifth one closer to the shoreline, though this one was never completed.

I am not sure why the commentator claims not gun emplacements with worthless ranging, as a simple glance shows how effective they ARE in position for defense and offense in the Barents and surrounds.

I am sure some will elude to these being UFO landing platforms… just wait and see :) Maybe this is where the UFO’s landed that took Hitler to the moon…

IT MIGHT TAKE TIME BUT HEY IT WOULD BE GREAT FUN.

If someone does then keep us informed.

It’s south of the first two (filled and submerged), north and east of the second of the submerged rings.

It was used as an important export port by Finland and Sweden between the wars.

The Germans used it as a base of operations to attack convoys going to Murmansk.

Just north of Liinakhamari (which is in a fjord), there is a peninsula which has many bunkers and artillery emplacements, some dating from German occupation, others from the Soviet post-War era when the area was used as a submarine and naval (one of the closest military naval bases to a non-Communist country–Finland–and the closest to Britain).

Google Earth, via Panaromio, has a fairly large number of photos of the W.W.2 infrastructure that remains on the peninsula, certainly worth checking out.
