Hi,
who can identify this light flak-gun. It is in position on the danish seafort Trekroner in Kopenhagen in 1940.
Thanks
Oliver

I would agree with your identification. I would say as these are Luftwaffe personnel that this is a training device allow aircrew to practice firing on the ground. The weapon was mounted in the He 111 among other aircraft.

Ummhhh...I think that the 2cm MG FF(M) airplane gun was drum-fed and the gun of my image have a box magazine.... :?
2cm Flak 28 (Oerlikon) ground AA gun have a box magazine but this gun have his own mount and it wouldn't make much sense to mount it in this rare installation of my image

Hi all,

The gun itself looks like a 10cm K14 field gun in an anti-aircraft mount on a truck.
Any idea ?

Too small to be a 10cm k14 I think.

I think, the gun comes from the 7,7 cm FK 16 n.A.

Well, I think you are right. Probably a FK16 or a FK16 n.A if the image was taken in 1930s...

Hmm, I'd say this is late WW1 and we are looking at one of the AA vehicle mounts....there were a couple of rare ones, fitted with Russian guns and one of the lesser known manufacturers, Henschel? Or indeed maybe the n.A.
