A couple of months ago I visited the magnificent Fort de Mutzig
. I have many photos and information to share with you regarding one of the first modern (made of concrete and reinforced concrete, not simple masonry) fortresses of the late 19th century static defense dogma
, ie the defensive doctrine that lead to the more famous Maginot and Siegfried lines of the early 20th century. Such fortresses are portrayed in the Pride of Nations
game as "post-industrial fortresses" for important cities and regions. Assaulting them un-breached is certain suicide.
Pride of Nations
allows for units to be added inside a fortress, including garrisons, artillery, even disappearing turrets
! All things I could see in this fortress. I even noticed a Fahrpanzer
, something I will show you in photos later (which is in the game as well).
(more to come, all photographs are mine, you are free to use them as you wish)
