Post by Kelvin » 17 Jul 2021 14:29

Hello, Swiss sold 1,268,000,000 Swiss Francs worth Arms to Germany between 1940 and 1944, anyone know what arms they sold to Germany, any number and type of weapon they sold during this period, I think maybe Solothurn or Orelikon AA guns, but how many they sold in this period, anyone have figures ? Thank

I don't suppose you have a figure for arms sales by Switzerland to the United Kingdom, by any chance?

Hi Kelvin,

Certainly Oerlikon was selling 20mm anti-aircraft ammunition to Germany over 1942-44.

Cheers,

Sid.
