Swiss Military Bastion is a fictional implementation of something
that really was going on in Switzerland during WWII times.
The concept, developed by Swiss general Henri Guisan, was called
'Réduit', wich means retreat, and basically consisted of a massive
fortification of the Swiss Alps, to protect and to defense the country
from it's innately least vulnerable terrain: the Alpine area.
Shelter capacities for up to 600.000 people were erected, all
perfectly hidden within the mountainous terrain. 40.000 fortifications
of differing sizes have been built, consuming the remarkable
overall-costs of 6 Billion U$D. Getting rid of this useless historical
ballast again costs quite an amount. The Bastions: In this pack you
will find 3 SMB's, namely Julier, Furka and Zermatt.
