This Interval casemate of the Maginot Line (Vosges Fortified Sector) protected the Schwarzbach river valley with its two light machine guns ('fusils-mitrailleurs') mounted in armored cupolas ('cloches') and its twin Reibel machine guns providing supporting fire to adjacent casemates. Moreover, twelve dams along the stream could flood the valley.
