Machine gun pillbox №292 was built in 1932 and was a part of a separate company defence area “S” of the Minsk Fortified Region.

Artillery half-caponier № 134 was built in 1932 and was a part of a separate company defence area “S” of the Minsk Fortified Region. A half-caponier is a fortification structure, which can only deliver flanking fire in one direction (in comparison to a caponier which delivers fire in two opposite directions).

A covered enclosure is attached to the back side of the pillbox. Such enclosures were protected from frontal fire by the concrete construction of the pillbox itself, so they could be reached by howitzer fire only.

The big part of the pillbox was divided into two casemates - the big and the small ones.
