The Air Defense

In both the Mosede Fort and at the Tune position different types of air defense were established.

The air defense was, at the time, far from efficient, but also here the devellopment was fast. Shooting down an aircraft in 1914 needed 50.000 rounds, in 1917 4000 rounds and in 1922 800 rounds  (calculation).
