Kort tid etter det tyske felttoget i Norge sluttet våren 1940, iverksatte tyskerne planleggingen og utbygging av et stort antall kystartilleri-batterier - deriblandt "Batterie Vara" Kurz nach der Besetzung Norwegen, Ende des Frühlings 1940, begann die deutsche Besatzungs - macht mit der Planung und dem Bau zahlreicher Küstenbatterien, darunter "Batterie Vara" Shortly after the German invasion of Norway was completed in the spring of 1940, the Wehrmacht started construction of a large number of artillery intallations placed along the coast, including the Vara Battery.



I årene etter 2. verdenskrig og fram til 1952 inngikk batteriet i de norske kystartilleri- oppsetningene. Utdannelsen av kanon- besetningen fant sted i disse årene, og en rekke skarpskytinger ble gjennomført. Siste gang det ble skutt var i 1952 - så var de store kanoners æra ute. Nach Kriegsschluss und bis 1952 machte die Batterie einen Teil der norwegishen Küsten- artillerie aus. Hier fand die Ausbildung unserer Kanonenmannscahften statt und hier wurden Scarfschussubungen durchgeführt. Der letzte Schuss wurde 1952 abgegeben, danach war die Ära der grossen Kanonen vorbei. After the second World War and up to 1952, Møvik fort served in the Norwegian coastal defense. Artillery crewmen were trained here during this period, and live shells were fired a number of times. the last shots from Møvik were fired in 1952. The era of the big guns was over.
