In some areas the defenses were quite formidable, whereas in others areas they were lacking. In this video I give you a short overview on the French parts of the Atlantic Wall and then show you how an individual infantry division was setup for coastal defense.

    Audio visual production from the Centro de Diseño y Producción de Recursos Instruccionales (CEDPRI) de la Universidad de Puerto Rico en Humacao. The half-hour documentary film was made by Dr. Gerardo M. Piñero Cádiz in 2013 and tells the story of preparing the island of Puerto Rico for the coming of war. All kind of media allow the spectator to understand, examine and protect the surviving elements of these awesome defenses. The film aims to rescue from oblivion the defensive sites built by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers on the island of Puerto Rico during the 1940s, and their relation to other military installations. We will also highlight their importance during the war emergency and briefly explain their operations. Just months into World War II, the United States would grant Puerto ...

This project consists of a number of surge barriers, for examples: 1- The Oosterscheldekering is the largest of the 13 ambitious Delta Works series of dams and storm surge barriers and it is the largest surge barrier in the world, 9 kilometres (5.6 mi) long. The dam is based on 65 concrete pillars with 62 steel doors, each 42 metres wide. It is designed to protect the Netherlands from flooding from the North Sea. 2- The Maeslantkering is a storm barrier with two movable arms; when the arms are open the waterway remains an important shipping route however when the arms close a protective storm barrier is formed for the city of Rotterdam. Closing the arms of the barrier is a completely auto...

    The Russian Black Sea fleet has carried out a successful test of its new-generation Bastion coastal defense system, as part of naval exercises Moscow says were pre-scheduled and not timed to coincide with the current NATO drills in the basin. The Defense Ministry said that 15 ships, over 10 planes and helicopters, and coastal guns took part in scheduled drills out of Sevastopol on Tuesday. The centerpiece was a demonstration of the post-Soviet Bastion – NATO call sign SSC-5 “Stooge” – anti-ship cruise missile complex. “The target practice in the firing range to the south-east of Sevastopol was carried out by the cutting-edge Bastion complex. The targets, which symbolized a navy squadron, were also attacked by four Su-24 jets. All missiles hit targets, which were destroyed,” said a statem...

Just months into World War II, the United States would grant Puerto Rico the same strategic importance that the Spanish Empire had given it in the past. The “Gibraltar of the Caribbean” had just become one of the most important parts of American defense system in the West Indies. Air bases, naval and ground systems, communications, roads, and all kinds of military installations transformed Puerto Rico into one of the most important strategic points in the Atlantic for the successful defense of commercial maritime routes, the Allied supply lines, troop movements, Caribbean oil transit, and the Panama Canal itself. To protect the military facilities, already built or under construction, from ground, aerial or naval attack, or sabotage, it was agreed to start the deployment of defenses, such as the coast artillery. Aside from protection, these defenses would lend support to ships while approaching, in transit, or sailing away from Puerto Rico.

Officially launched by the Prime Minister of Tuvalu on August 30 2017 in the capital of Funafuti, the Tuvalu Coastal Adaptation Project, implemented by UNDP, is set to shore up Tuvalu's coastal defenses in the face of rising sea levels and storm surges driven by climate change. The Tuvalu Coastal Adaptation Project, set to run for seven years, is financed with US$36 million from the Green Climate Fund and $2.9 million from the Government of Tuvalu. “Some time ago a little girl on the island of Nanumea asked me: ‘Prime Minister what can you do to save me? How can you ensure I can continue living on my island?’ That question struck at the bottom of my heart. It has become my mission and must be the mission that every Tuvaluan to paddle together to.” said Prime Minister Enele Sopoaga, at the launch event. “This project is the pride of Tuvalu. Its implementation is based on strong partnership with island leaders and communities, and with our partner UNDP we will paddle together to build resilience...” Learn more: http://www.adaptation-undp.org/projects/tuvalu-coastal-adaptation-project Follow the project on Twitter #TCAPGCF

The Delta Works in the Netherlands (Holland) is the largest flood protection project in the world. This project consists of a number of surge barriers, for examples: 1- The Oosterscheldekering is the largest of the 13 ambitious Delta Works series of dams and storm surge barriers and it is the largest surge barrier in the world, 9 kilometres (5.6 mi) long. The dam is based on 65 concrete pillars with 62 steel doors, each 42 metres wide. It is designed to protect the Netherlands from flooding from the North Sea. 2- The Maeslantkering is a storm barrier with two movable arms; when the arms are open the waterway remains an important shipping route however when the arms close a protective storm barrier is formed for the city of Rotterdam. Closing the arms of the barrier is a completely automated process done without human intervention. The Great Wall of Louisiana https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7xOWEbq6WRM

The Russian Black Sea fleet has carried out a successful test of its new-generation Bastion coastal defense system, as part of naval exercises Moscow says were pre-scheduled and not timed to coincide with the current NATO drills in the basin. The Defense Ministry said that 15 ships, over 10 planes and helicopters, and coastal guns took part in scheduled drills out of Sevastopol on Tuesday. The centerpiece was a demonstration of the post-Soviet Bastion – NATO call sign SSC-5 “Stooge” – anti-ship cruise missile complex. “The target practice in the firing range to the south-east of Sevastopol was carried out by the cutting-edge Bastion complex. The targets, which symbolized a navy squadron, were also attacked by four Su-24 jets. All missiles hit targets, which were destroyed,” said a statement from the Defense Ministry. While Moscow insists that the format of the exercises had been planned in advance, they come one day after a controversial incident that ratcheted up tensions in the Black Sea, which is bordered by Crimea and Ukraine in the north. On Monday, NATO accused three Russian jets of buzzing – flying closely overhead – a Canadian ship taking part in its own exercises. Canada’s Defense Minister Rob Nicholson said the maneuver was “unnecessarily provocative.” Moscow denied purposely aggravating NATO personnel, saying the jets did not approach and asserting that their presence in the vicinity was “in line with international regulations.” The three day “reassurance exercises” are being conducted jointly by NATO and Kiev and have involved four ships, though none of them entered a Ukrainian port. Nicholson claimed the unscheduled drills are the “direct result of the Putin regime's military aggression and invasion of Ukraine.” NATO is also conducting exercises in the Baltic, and plans to stage land drills in Ukraine before the end of the year. The alliance also announced the creation of a new eastern European force after a summit in Wales last week. Moscow has responded negatively to all NATO initiatives, accusing it of destabilizing the fragile situation in Ukraine, and paving the way for bloc’s eastward expansion. Russia’s NATO envoy, Aleksandr Grushko, said that NATO used the crisis in Ukraine as a pretext to step up its military presence near Russian borders, describing the alliance’s role in the Ukrainian conflict as “extremely destructive.” READ MORE: http://on.rt.com/7ilyef ۞============۩============۞ PERTAHANAN pantai RUSIA di Crimea amalan sasaran peringkat di tengah-tengah latihan NATO di Laut HITAM Armada Laut Hitam Rusia telah menjalankan ujian yang berjaya generasi baru sistem Bastion pertahanan pantai, sebagai sebahagian daripada latihan tentera laut Moscow berkata telah pra-berjadual dan tidak ditetapkan masanya bertepatan dengan latihan NATO semasa di lembangan itu. Kementerian Pertahanan berkata, 15 kapal, lebih daripada 10 kapal terbang dan helikopter, dan senjata api pantai mengambil bahagian dalam latihan dijadualkan daripada Sevastopol pada Selasa. Di tengah-tengah ini adalah demonstrasi selepas Soviet Bastion - panggilan NATO menandatangani SSC-5 "Badut" - kompleks anti-kapal peluru berpandu. "Amalan sasaran dalam julat menembak ke selatan-timur Sevastopol dilakukan oleh kompleks Bastion canggih. Sasaran, yang melambangkan satu skuadron tentera laut, telah juga diserang oleh empat Su-24 jet. Semua peluru berpandu terkena sasaran, yang telah musnah, "kata satu kenyataan daripada Kementerian Pertahanan. Walaupun Moscow menegaskan bahawa format latihan telah dirancang terlebih dahulu, mereka datang sehari selepas kejadian kontroversi yang ratcheted sehingga ketegangan di Laut Hitam, yang bersempadan dengan Crimea dan Ukraine di utara. Pada hari Isnin, NATO menuduh 3 jet Rusia drone - terbang rapat atas kepala - kapal Kanada mengambil bahagian dalam latihan sendiri. Menteri Pertahanan Kanada Rob Nicholson berkata manuver itu "tidak perlu provokatif." Moscow menafikan sengaja memburukkan anggota NATO, berkata jet tidak mendekati dan menegaskan bahawa kehadiran mereka di kawasan itu "selaras dengan peraturan-peraturan antarabangsa." 3 hari "latihan jaminan" sedang dijalankan bersama oleh NATO dan Kiev dan telah melibatkan 4 kapal-kapal, walaupun tiada seorang pun daripada ianya memasuki pelabuhan Ukraine . . . laca lanjut: http://bolly1wc.blogspot.com/
