Only about 35 Il-2.8s were observed at the field. There was no air activity. 2 On r ecernber, excavation work was under way near the fuel dump in the northern section of the field. The dump was presumably to be enlarged to the east. The fence and lighting facilities had already been shifted. Two fuel containers each abo-at the size of a railroad tank car were seen in the fuel dump. 3 Tn , December, the AA gun emplacement in the southwestern section of the field was apparently unoccupied. Six 76-mm AA guns were seen in the emplacement at the northwestern edge of the field. About 60 soldiers practiced with the guns. 't noon, the soldiers moved into the AA billets in the angle formed by the Weendorf-'d;'erneuchen and Wesendahl-Werneuchen roads. Two large van-like vehicle: e ac- mounting a model AA 1 P'( 2 set were parked in the adjacent sheds. The model set which had previously been observed near the AA gun emplacement was row located near the westernmost hangar in the southwestern corner of the field. Two 37-mm: AA g u s were seen in the AA gun emplacement just south of the eastern section a the southern taxiway. It is possible that additional guns were located in this area which could not be entirely observed. A model AA 4 MN 3 set was observed north of the western end of the runway between the first and third aircraft revetments. The Pl';-45 DF station was still located about 1,000 meters east of the eastern end of the runway. A single-mast radio installation with the radio truck truck hauling equipment, were observed 25X1 200 meters east of the DF station. About 200 meters east of the single-mast radio installation was a radio truck with a broom-shaped antenna. The Kniferest- -tyre radar set and Fishnet-type set were still located at the eastern end of the southern taxiway. Two radio trucks without rod antennas were parked just northeast of the easternmost hangar. 4 The following motor vehicles were observed at the field: Trucks with driver daring red-bordered black epaulets with driver wearing black-bordered blue epaulets with driver wearing black-bordered blue epaulets with driver wearing; black-bordered. blue epaulets bulance A new road from Hirschfelde to Wegendorf extended between the PKV-45 DF station and the single-mast radio installation, along the southeastern border of the field. The road met with the former Hirschfelde-Wegendorf road close to the fence around the airfield.

The shipments of combustibles consigned to .Cubrovski were 25X1 presumably intended for use by air force units at -';Verneuchen airfield. the Twenty-P'ourt:i 25X1 Air Army was repeatedly observed as dispatcher and consignee. The shipments from `Nerneuchen to T_?eubukow presumably belonged to the AAA. The shipments to Fi,sterwalde which were repeatedly reported cannot be accounted for. _____]Commeht. 'Nerneuchen airfield is still occu,ied by 2 bomber regiments e-;a.ipped with 48 to 50 I1-28s. Comment. According to available information, the northern fuel dump has a holding capacity of aboU.t 1 million liters. The information that the dump s to be enlarged is received for the first time. The southern fuel dump as approximately the same capacity as the northern dump. Com_-,ient. The number of AA guns and AA directors has not changed. The c"h.ar,ge of location of the model AA 1 MK 2 set indicates that the AA gun emplacement in the soutl%stern section of the field was possibly occupied. It i.: apparently difficult to determine the occupation. The radio and radar. 'etc were reported previously.
