Batterie Allemande de Longues-sur-mere - 150mm

This German Battery located at Longues-sur-Mer was very powerful and was within striking distance of both Omaha Beach and Gold Beach, so it was imperative that the Germans not be able to keep this battery active.  It consisted of four 150 mm gun posts, located 300 meters back from the edge of the cliff overlooking the seas and one observation and control room bunker right on the sea. The guns had a range of 12.5 miles, letting them easily reach Omaha and Gold beaches.
