The smallest operational unit was the Flakzug ( platoon ), with two heavy guns served by 14–20 men, three medium guns by 24 men,
or three light guns by 12 men.

von Thoma,

thank You for the reply!
I assume the same counts for a Alarm Flak Zug.

Hello

Here a Flak-Batterie on my site.

Alarm Einheiten do usually have no fixed size as they are adhoc Units depending on the available assets.
