2cm Quad FlaK Gun Platoon
with 3 guns, trailers and Command Team.
Not satisfied with the rate of fire of the single barrelled 2cm FlaK38, the quadrupled barrelled version of the FlaK38 boosted an impressive rate of fire of 1800 rounds per minute. However, under combat conditions this was reduced to 800 rounds a minute.
Target tracking was accomplished by the means of traversing and elevating the guns via two hand wheels. The guns themselves were fired by two foot pedals, each firing the pair of gun diagonally opposite and could be fired in pairs or simultaneously in either semi-automatic or fully automatic modes. The gun proved versatile and was effective against both ground targets and low-flying aircraft.
