Geocache Description:


[FIN] Tämä kätkö esittelee Kärmeniemen tykkipatterin, joka on osa Suomenlahdelta Sallaan ulottuvaa Salpalinjaa.

Salpalinjan rakentaminen Suomen itärajalle aloitettiin heti talvisodan jälkeen. Salpalinjalla ei koskaan taisteltu, mutta kesällä 1944 se olemassaolollaan antoi rohkeutta ja selustatukea raskaissa torjuntataisteluissa. Lisäksi se vaikutti Neuvostoliiton sodanjohdon päätökseen keskeyttää hyökkäykset Suomen rintamalla.

Talvisodan jälkeen Neuvostoliitolle luovutettavalta alueelta, Käkisalmen Vahtiniemen patterista, siirrettiin tykit Lemille, minne kevään 1940 aikana aloitettiin Salpalinjan rakentaminen. Tykit (2 kpl 152/45-C) sijoitettiin Kärmeniemen linnoitettuihin tykkiasemiin.

Tykkien ominaisuuksia:
- putken paino (lukko mukaanlukien) 5,8tn.
- tykin kokonaispaino 18,5tn.
- ammuksen pano 41,5kg.
- koko laukaus (ammus+ruuti+hylsy) 67kg.
- tykillä voitiin ampua 19 km:n etäisyydellä olevaan maaliin Salpalinjan eteen Luumäelle ja Rutolaan

Kätkö ei sijaitse tykkipatterin rakenteissa!
Tykkipatterille pääsee autolla ihan perille saakka.

Toinen tykkiasema sijaitsee muutaman sadan metrin päässä koordinaateissa
N61°04.213 E27°45.257

Jos haluaa tutustua tykkipatterin sisätiloihin, niin taskulamppu on lähes pakollinen varuste.


[ENG) This cache will introduce you Kärmeniemi defense fortification which was built during the second world war. It is part of Salpa-line.

The Finnish Salpa-line fortification is one of the largest construction sites in the history of the Scandinavian countries. It was built in 1940 - 41 and 1944 to secure the eastern border of Finland. The fortification extends itself from the Gulf of Finland to as far as the Arctic Ocean.

There has never been fight in Salpa-line, but in the summer 1944 it gave courage and backup during the hard defence fights. In addition it influenced to the decisions of Soviet Union´s army to stop attacks in the Finnish frontier.

This fortification had two 152/45-C cannons. Their range was 19 km.

The cache is not located in the structure of fortification!

Another fortifification is located at N61°04.213 E27°45.257

If you want to go inside the bunker, get a flashlight with you.
