2 Cm Flak 30/38/Flakvierling
The Flak 30 (Flugabwehrkanone 30) and improved Flak 38 were 20 mm anti-aircraft guns used by various German forces throughout the Second World War. It was not only the primary German light anti-aircraft gun, but by far the most numerously produced German artillery piece throughout the war. It was produced in a variety of models, notably the Flakvierling 38 which combined four Flaks 38 onto a single carriage.
Famous quotes containing the word flak:
“I woke to black flak and the nightmare fighters.
When I died they washed me out of the turret with a hose.”
—Randall Jarrell (19141965)
