Coordinates: 74°35′S 11°0′W / 74.583°S 11.000°W / -74.583; -11.000 The Heimefront Range is a range of mountains in three groups trending northeast–southwest for 65 nautical miles (120 km), situated 50 nautical miles (93 km) west-southwest of the Kirwan Escarpment in Queen Maud Land, Antarctica. The range was observed and photographed by the Norwegian–British–Swedish Antarctic Expedition in the course of air reconnaissance from Maudheim Station in January 1952. The name "Heimefrontfjella" (homefront range) was applied by the placename authority in the Norwegian government. This range may include the rudely mapped mountains identified as "Kottas Berge" on the map of the Third German Antarctic Expedition of 1938–39.[1]
