Twin 8.8cm FlaK37 Railway Car

includes one Twin 8.8cm FlaK37 Railway Car with two 8.8cm FlaK37 guns and 16 crew figures.

The notorious 88mm gun (commonly called the Eighty-eight) was a German anti-aircraft gun. Widely used throughout the war, it was one of Germany’s most recognised weapons.

‘Flak’ is a contraction of Flugzeugabwehrkanone, ‘aircraft-defence cannon’. In English, ‘flak’ became a generic term for ground anti-aircraft fire. The Germans colloquially referred to the gun as the Acht-acht (‘Eight-eight’). The 8.8 cm FlaK37 was the final development of the Eighty-eight produced by Krupp. Weighing 7 tonnes, it could fire 15-20 rounds per minute.

As well as its intended use in the anti-aircraft role, the 88 was also very successful as an improvised anti-tank gun, leading to the development of a tank gun based upon it: the 8.8 cm KwK 36.

10.5cm FlaK39 Railway car – 30,00 USD

10.5cm FlaK39 Railway car

includes one 10.5cm Flak39 Railway car with one 10.5cm Flak39 gun and 10 crew figures.

The 10.5cm Flak39 was the standard German heavy anti-aircraft weapon. While this was its primary use, like the famous ‘Eighty-eight’, the 10.cm FlaK gun was also provided with anti-tank sights and APC shells. Designed and built by Rheinmetall, it ws produced in both static and mobile versions and was also mounted on railed vehicles.

In many parts of Germany mobile FlaK units were employed with guns on railway mounts. They could be equipped with any of the following calibres: 20mm (single or four-barrelled), 37mm, 75mm, 88mm, or 105mm. These units moved from place to place in special FlaK trains, with their own living and kitchen accommodations. The width of the broad-type heavy FlaK cars was extended with a folding flap, allowing crews space to operate the guns effectively. The heavy guns were not generally fired on the move. On arrival at their destination the trains were broken up, and the guns and equipment sited on sidings.
