Untill the early 2000s, this academy was one of two central training facilites of the German Navy for training with ship's weapons and ammunition.
The photos in this gallery show the school for the operation and maintenance personnel for surface weapons and the corresponding control units.
Basic training was conducted here as well, in this case for future surface weapon mechanics and ops personnel that were training for missions on fast attack boats.
The academy was built in the early 1970s, when the Navy's school for submarine weapons and the Navy's Artillery School were joined to form a new Naval Academy consisting of the aforementioned sections for surface and submarine weapons.
This part of the academy has been sold to private investors.
