At the begining of WW2 on the northern part of Constanta city (Romania) the 688.Eisenbahn Batterie “Lange Bruno” was stationed. In 1942 it was moved to Odessa. Do you have more info about this battery or any pics?

Mussolini was given by Hitler in 1940 two Wagons with Flakvierlings. he never used them and they were employed for AA defense of Rome.
