Panzer Nest – German WW2 mobile MG bunker
Panzernest was a mobile machine gun bunker (sometimes called Krab), designed and built by Nazi Germany in early 1940. It was made of cast steel, as a single block of metal, with few additional elements such as machine gun hatches and entrance for the crew. The MG Panzernest did provide the crew with valuable protection, both against weather and enemy fire up to 4,7cm in calibre. Nest could be easily transported with the opening at the front doubling as the housing for the towing limber and the holes for the ventilation acting as the mounting for an axle, which was then fitted two wheels.
