War Work in Factory #11

Factory #11 getting ready for war production. The following photos show the 90 mm and 4.7 gun mount and sight work done during the war. The lapping of the gun mount gears was also performed in factory #29 so it is possible some of the gear work shown here was done there. And work done in the making of the 20 mm shell body was also performed in factory #12. Other work in #11 included making camshafts. Factory #11 is now all gone as of summer 2011.
