Twelve marine 130 mm guns called “Staliniec” were purchased in the USSR in 1949 for Ustka. Artillery posts were deployed on the first of the sea wooded dune ridge stretched along the beach. It was the same dune ridge on which 3 km away from here to the east Germans positioned the Blücher battery in 1938.
The plans, approved finally in 1950, provided for the establishment of 11 coastal artillery batteries, including eight fitted with a working-caliber 130 mm, one caliber 152 mm and two 100 mm. Their construction at selected points of the coast was one of the largest and most expensive weapon programs implemented by Polish People’s Army in the 50s. To transport building materials for these batteries only in 1953, it was necessary to use more than two thousand rail cars with a capacity of 20 tonnes each.
And this time, however big plans came to nothing. In 1974, Ustka 9 PAB was resolved and all that sort of Polish units. Artillery works long before ceased to be reckoned with in the concept of defense of the Warsaw Pact. Since the 60’s grew the importance of missile weapons and means of air attack . After the dissolution of the battery the maintenance of “Staliniec” was discontinued and in 1994 it was dismantled and sent for scrap. Firing positions of the battery, where barrels caliber 130 mm aimed, densely overgrew with pine trees, but reinforced concrete structures still fascinate with its grandeur.
