Restock: 8.8cm Flak 36 – Anti-Aircraft Anti-Tank Gun
About the 8.8 cm FlaK 36:
First created in 1934, the FlaK 18 or German 88 was developed in secret to avoid the restrictions of the Treaty of Versailles in 1919. The improved FlaK 36 followed soon after and became a favorite among German Army personnel because of its ability to slice through armor as far as 1,800 meters away. Though mostly used for air defense, the FlaK 36 saw some action as an anti-tank weapon as well, although its size and weight made it difficult to transport across uneven or soft terrain.
Later in the war, the FlaK 36 was mounted on railway cars and vehicles and was even used as the main weapon in the heavily armored German Tiger Tank.
Brickmania’s latest FlaK 36 kit features new ambush camo and a traversable gun that rotates a full 360° and elevates to 90°.
