9 cm Flak M 39 (f)

Post by jopaerya » 09 Feb 2008 12:10

Hello All

Here some not so good picture's of this rare gun , according
to some books only 17 were in service in the French Army .
This was a mobile gun with 3 outtriggers , the French name is
Canon de 90 mm de D.C.A. a traction mecanique Mle1926 .
If you see the rings around the barrels they were pretty succesful

Photo's = Ebay de and usa

The 9 cm Flak M.39(f) that protected Antwerp belonged to gemichte Flak-Abteilung 295(v). See here some interesting information included details on one particular battery:
http://users.telenet.be/WMF-home/WMF_2008_2.PDF

This Flak-Abteilung arrived in Antwerp in 1943. The date of 1943 is indeed mentioned on some of the captions of the ebay pictures on sale. We also learned from captions of the same series of ebay pictures that this Flak-Abteilung was near Abbeville in 1942.

For a short history of gemichte Flak-Abteilung 295(v) see here:

According to the ebay vendor, there was something written in the back of the picture. The caption on ebay was "Flak-Geschütz Bertha Feuerstellung bei Antwerpen Belgien". So it would be the 2nd gun ("Berta") of gem.Flak.Abt 295v in Antwerp.
