Some time we can find very strange thing like this.
Browning flak or a flak 50.
I find it on a US.Army link some time ago.

Hey, why not?! We had a quad-mount, either in the M16 Halftrack, or on a trailer. Why shouldn't the Germans copy it? Is that not the most sincere form of flattery?
Of course, the caption is little off! I don't see any wheels on that emplacement!

It seems to me that Amers have by themself mounted those M2's on captured German equipment.. and not another wat around, just look at the trooper.. looks like GI to me..

Uninen, I have to ask: What does "wat" mean? Is "Amers" some kind of abbreviation for "Americans"?
Yes, the trooper is a GI, but look at the comma in the caption. The second "captured" indicates that this emplacement/wagon was itself captured by the Americans (hence the .50s were re-captured).
