Madsen 20mm AA guns

Post by Sturm78 » 06 Aug 2009 15:45

Hi all,

I found these images on Ebay.com of Madsen AA guns.

I know that these guns were used during the Second World War by Denmark, Finland, Hungary and Germany, at least. I think it remained in production by the Germans during the war, but I am not sure. How many were manufactured?

However I think there were several different models of Madsen 20mm anti-aircraft guns. I do not know the designations or Danish or German. Have anyone more information and/or pictures of these guns?

Thanks in advance. Sturm78

Thank you very much for your information and images, Jopaerya and Martti. :D

I think there were more than one version of the 20mm Madsen model 1933: a version with legs with holes and one without legs. I think that the Brazilian Madsen guns had no legs and may shoot on her mount wheels. See image 1

According to your information I think :

Image 1 : brazilian Madsen M1933 (I think without legs)
Image 2 : to the left, rare Madsen with cruciform carriage :? and to the right a Madsen M1933 with legs with holes
Image 3 : Madsen M1935 on pedestal mount (I think perhaps the 2 axles version ??)

Regards Sturm78.
