2 cm KwK 30 L/55 and the 222

Post by Brady » 02 May 2019 16:17

Could the 2 cm KwK 30 L/55 in the Sd.Kfz. 222 take the 25 round magazines ?

I have some sources that show the 10 round mag's and others that suggest the 25 round mag's would work ?

I think the 20 round magazine would be impossible to fit in as the mg34 is in the way. The 20 round mag is 350mm long and the gap between the two is only about 200mm.

Nice pics - that second one looks like a prototype or early version from the MG13? I've never seen that configuration before and it doesn't look like a field modification.

Its the KWK 30 with the shorter barrel in the B&W photo. The colour one has the kwk 38 / flak 38 with the longer barrel.

Hi everybody,
the second Picture is not a prototype. It is a Vehicle for Export and sold to China.
Here one more photo.
