Hello,

During the Great War, some 8,8-cm SKL/45 in MPL C/13 guns were dismounted from great Battleships and Battle Cruisers in 1915-1916 and also some made new.They were used as Marine Flak weapons in Germany, belgian coast and also on western front to protect some Marine Guns batteries, especially "Paris Kanonen" in 1918.
Some were mobile weapons as these:

This 8,8-cm SKL/45, near Fère-en-Tardenois, was used to protect "Pariser Kanone" from "Bois de Bruyères" in july 1918.
But, with the success of the french attack of 18th July 1918, the gun retreated but made a fatal encounter with french aircrafts of the "Division Aérienne" and also some shooting of french railway gun with these results:

Yours sincerely,
Guy François.

Hi all,

Any chance these guns were used as dual purpose flak/conventional sea coast defence artillery or were they only used as flak guns? I recall reading somewhether that these guns are dual purpose.

Best,
Nezar

I have always been wondering if the 8.8cm guns made for China is similar to 8.8cm Flak L/45? For pictures of the Chinese guns see here: viewtopic.php?f=101&t=109421

As for na4222's question, I remember that in Chinese documents it is clearly state that this is a dual-purpose gun. Chinese report on 8.8cm gun's fighting performance is still surviving today.
