Aerostats at Kaunas IX Fort

Recently I visited Kaunas IX Fort which was used as a prison during Soviet and Nazi occupation. It hosts a museum with a lot of interesting facts about Lithuania's struggle towards independence. I came accross these three pictures which I'd like to share with you. The discriptions are the ones stated under the pictures in the museum. Unfortunately there was not more detailed information available (in English).

'Russian aerostat takes off'

'Camera mounted on the aerostat's basket'

'German aerostat used for observation and spotting targets for artillery'
