Originally developed as an anti-aircraft weapon, the Flak 37 8.8cm (or Eighty-eight as it became known by Allied troops) had a high muzzle velocity to allow it to reach the higher ranges modern bombers were capable of at the time. This would make it an exceptionally deadly anti-tank weapon as many Allied tank crews would learn to their peril. The 88 could also be deployed as a conventional artillery piece – as one infantryman noted, the 88 was 'anti-everything'...

Use the Flak 37 just like Rommel did in the Western Desert, well placed with an open field of fire as far back out of reach of enemy units as possible and well dug in. Utilize the Super-heavy anti-tank gun on a rotating platform to blast apart enemy armour from far distances.

    Nice but not the easiest assembly

    I'm not the best model builder, so I found this one a little difficult to get completed, But once done it looks nice.
