    Product Description
    History: The "Vogele" platform was mainly used in France in the coastal regions, around Calais, in Italy and Russia. This combination of railwaygun and Vogele turnplate was often used in W.W. II by the German whermacht. The platform enable them to traverse the railwaygun through 360 in either direction. The average time t set up thegun and platform for use was 48 hours. It took 24 hours to construct te turning circle rails and another 24 hours to construct the mounting platform and transfer the gun and carriage on to the platform. The platform was developed by "Krupp" and named after the chief engineer "Vogele". He controlled the whole development program. The main problems where the platform had to be portable, strong and able to be used with different railwayguns. When the gun was fired thes was a massive re-coil that had to be counter - acted by the hydraulic cylinders on the head of the platform. In times of emergencies or times of air-raids the whole circle was covered with camouflage nets and foliageand the railwaygun was hidden in a kathedral shelter or a railway tunnel .
    2 types of platforms were used a short and long version..
