► 88 mm Guns on Half-Tracks

Your numbers are far too low.
Generally there were 25 pieces of 8,8 cm Bunkerflak mounted on armoured SdKfz 8. These vehicles saw action in France in 1940 as well as on the Eastern Front in 1941.
Further 14 (out of 112 ordered) 8,8 cm Flak 37 (Sf) auf Zgkw 18 t were built in 1943, but these vehicles went to Italy as far as I remember, so it's rather unlikely that any of these two could be encountered in France.
I'm not aware of any other semitracked 8,8 cm platform - the gun was really heavy, so even the SdKfz 9 needed structural strenghtening.

Grzesio

Here is an excerpt of a picture (from ebay.de) of one of the 25 built 8.8 cm Bunkerflak mounted on armoured SdKfz 8 in France in 1940.

They were still in use in the openingbattles of Operation Barbarossa in 1941 as this picture shows. At least two `Bunkerflak´ with some PzKpfw 38t in advance. From exp ebay.

According to Grezio, there were 25 vehicles that saw actions in 1940 and 1941, and 14 more built in 1943 and used in Italy. There are a lot of pictures for such a small number of units!
