Collection of the main weapons of the AAA units - may 1940

The picture shows a collection of the main weapons of the AAA units. In the fore-ground the Vickers 7,5 cm. In the middle the Bofors 4 cm gun, which was also used in the British army. A very modern and capable gun, although operation of the gun - especially presetting the timer-fuse of the grenades - required a well trained and skill-full crew.

In the background (left) an Oerlikon 2 cm AA gun, a large photo of a distance aimer (stereoscope) and a Spandau MG on AA tripod (right).
