The proving Ground of the German Weapons Office(Heereswaffenambt) at Hillersleben, Germany, had as its mission the development and testing of field artillery and its ammunition.
The planning for the construction and operation was thorough and this factor permitted the realization of high operating efficiency.
The plant combined arsenal and proving ground functions especially in ammunition development. As to the availability of facilities very little more could possibly have been desired. The magnitude of these facilities was most striking even to those well acquainted with this type of operation. Click on the areas for details.
