Jos,

On the bottom right of your document, left of the Flak symbol, is a "5" for the 5 cm Flak 41 or an "s" for "schwer/heavy"?

Usually the caliber is on the left,
The amount below, and the suffix are right of the arrow (like the origin.country.of the gun)
So 5.

Jos,

Do you know where this 5 cm Flak-armed "12. Battr." was positioned?

The only 5 cm Flak gun I know is the Flak 41. So it would have also been used by the KM then in addition to the LW. :?

Hello Emmanuel

There was a naval 5 cm Flak 41 in this report, but I never found any naval 5 cm Flak 41 flak gun in the A.W.
