Hello
I asked about the uniforms because the heading says Kriegsmarine Flak. As they are not KM uniforms, perhaps the uniforms give a clue of where and when if not KM. Then it could be easier to identify the gun.

Hi,

The gun is a German naval gun indeed - it's the 3,7 cm SK C/30 in Einheitslafette C/34.

Regards

Hello

Still having some problem with this gun , the photo in the book of Gander and Chamberlain
on page 135 is the same as the one from s.pak but on page 262 with the same name a other
model gun. The 3.7 cm S.K.C/30 guns in EhL C/34 I have found in the Atlantikwall are all from
the last model mostly with shield ?? The most striking difference is the muzzle break .

Are there 2 models 3.7 cm S.K.C/30 in Einheitslafette C/34

Jos, the last one is the single shot weapon.
The first a Maschinenkanone

Hi Nuyt

Thanks for your reply , If I look in the book Naval Weapons W.W.2 from J.Campbell
the gun with the ammo strips with 6 rounds is the 3.7 cm Flak M 42 and the 3.7 cm
S.K.C/30 only single-shot . It's very confusing all those books with different information.

I am still not convinced that this gun is one 3,7 cm SK C/30 in Einheitslafette C/34.
it is too different....

jus for info, the third photograph (with camo) is in my collection, it is me which bought with "auction factory".
