AFV Club 1/35 German 2cm Flak38 AA Gun w/ TOW Trailer
The Flak 38 is a German towed 20mm automatic anti-aircraft gun from the Second World War. The first prototypes of the plot were created in 1938, and serial production began shortly after. The maximum vertical range was 3,700 m, and the initial velocity of the projectile was 900 m / s. Theoretical rate of fire was up to 420 rounds per minute.
The Flak 38 was developed by the Mauser company as a far-reaching modification of the Flak 30 cannon. First of all, the theoretical rate of fire was increased in the new cannon and the general mechanical structure was improved. This improved the parameters of the weapon, however, as shown by the combat operations of 1940-1941, the Flak 38 still had too little firepower, which it was decided to increase by creating a quadruple cannon - this is how the 2 cm Flakvierling 38 was born. Both versions of the cannon were massively used by the Wehrmacht in progress World War II in 1940-1945. They also served as an armament for several vehicles, including: Flakpanzer 38 (t), Mobelwagen and Wirbelwind.
