German Radarposition Tiger - Sockel WR Radar

This Sockel WR Radar (type V229) was part of Stützpunkt V Tiger. On the sockel was a Würzburg Riese. Two of these were on this radar position. The radars could rotate 360 degrees. With two Wurzburg-Riese and a Wasserman antenna, aircraft could be detected and tracked.

This bunker is part of the German radarposition Tiger from World War II. This site is now housed in a museum. More information about this museum can be found at
