Hi there everybody. My name is Marcelo; and I was surfing the net when I found this incredible pictureBrady wrote:Interesting Chinese AA Gun, anyone have a clue as to what it is?>
of what I believe it`s a couple of Chinese soldiers with a German or a Swiss 20 mm SEMAG Anti Aircraft gun
very similar of those that the Bolivian Army used against the Paraguayans durirng the Chaco War.
Some were captured by the Paraguayans and used them against Bolivian fortifications to clear them
Bolivian airplanes and also machine guns nests. The Ethiopians/Abyssinians used them to against the
Italian Regia Aeronautica when the fascists invaded their country. Unfortunatelly it seems that there are many
denominations for this AA MG. in the net and there is some confusion about it. To be honest I really don`t know what
model is. But I`m Pretty shure that is a Semag. In some other places it`s called Mod. 1921; Mod 1923 ; M.23 or Oerlikon Mod. F. Hoping to be of any help to you. Please let me know. Congratulations for this incredible post
because all the photograph are amazing and I wish you all the best. Marcelo.
