Flakbettungen with FFM

Post by kstdk » 18 Jul 2005 11:07

Hello all

Does anybody know more of the use of FFM guns used as Flak ??

These guns from Aeroplanes were widely used as flakguns for protection of airfields, but not many sources and / or ducumentation or pictures of them available !!

Picture Source: Expried E-bay auction / Manfred Griehl "Das Grosse Buch der Flak".

Regards
Kurt

As far as I know there there no 2 cm MG-FFM used as ground anti-air weapons. What is missing in your list are the MG-151/20 and MK 103.

It was the same gun with a modified recoil spring, which was neccessary due to the mass of the new Mine-round. The already existing 2 cm Sprgr. was redesigned to fit to the new recoil spring.

@ Jos

The photo with the strange "Flak sled" towed by a Opel Blitz has been brought up before!

@ducatim901,
it should read 2cm MG FF/M exactely. It's an a/c cannon originaly.

@kstdk,
you have an error in a caption of the starting post:

Pic #2 reads MG 131, but it is a pair of MG 17.

Hello
The position where the photo is taken is described in a german map as a FMG position, and also as a FliegerMG.
Could it been for something of the above mentioned guns ?

Hi Stril

If there are no bolts on the base , it must be a wooden
pole with a Fla-Pivot 17 , I don't know what type of Flieger
M.G. was used in your bettung .
