Hi Jos,

Interesting picture !

Yes, it looks like the same gun indeed, towed by Henschel 33, possibly the “mittlere Flakkraftwagen” version. The question I have is: was the trailer designed to render the gun mobile like its derivative the Belgian 75 mm FRC M1927 ? Or is it done here for propaganda purposes only? Or was the trailer just a means to transport the gun to another static location?

Hi all,

Was this image taken in Germany or in another country?
Bulgarian guns perhaps....? :?

The trailer seems similar to a Sd.Ah.201 of the 8.8cm Flak 18

Thanks Nuyt

That would mean there was a kind of mobile naval battery during the Spanish Civil War ???

Hello
Four of the 14 x 8,8 cm Flak L /45 in MPLC/13 supplied to Spain were mounted on German
7,5 / 36 Flak 14 carriages as one mobile battery . The photo probable from the Desfile de la Victoria
in 1943 .
Book sources :
La Artilleria en Guerra Civil , Material de Origen de Aleman , page 60 - 61
La Artilleria Naval en la Guerra Civil Espanola 1936/39 , page 267 - 271

1.Delivery May 1937 - 4 x guns . first fixed land later mobile battery
2.Delivery August 1937 - 6 x guns for Mar Cantabrico and Vulcano
3.Delivery April 1938 - 4 guns for Navarra
