Hamburg had many factories and a military harbor with direct access to the sea.
The two Flaktürme, actualy called Gefechtstürme, are the highlights.
The AA towers have designations, IV and VI, which stipulates that there
was a form of standardisation in the Reich. Comparable towers stood in Berlin and Vienna.
Firecontrol for the batteries was conducted in separated big towers.
In Hamburg no such Leittürme are left. We have also placed a casual finding in
Flensburg temporarily in this chapter.
