The German 8.8cm Flugabwehrkanone (flight defence cannon, or FlaK) gun is one of the most famous guns in the world.
The Wehrmacht requested a heavier gun than the Krupps/Bofors developed 75mm and so Krupps designed the 8.8cm FlaK 18.
It entered production in 1933. The Flak 18 was a large gun with a long, one-piece barrel mounted on a pivoted cruciform carriage with two axles. This arrangement allowed for a rapid deployment in which outriggers were lowered to support the gun and the wheel trailers were removed.
Experience in the Spanish Civil War led to minor improvements. A more robust transport carriage was designed.
