Trumpeter 1:35 - German Anti-aircraft Gun, 3.7cm Flak 43 - Plastic model kit #02311

The 3.7cm Flak 18/36/37/43 was a series of anti-aircraft cannon produced by Nazi Germany that saw widespread service in the Second World War. The 3.7cm Flak 43 was a dramatic improvement over older models. A new gas-operated breech increased the practical firing rate to 150 RPM, while at the same time dropping in weight to 1,250 kg (2,760 lb) in combat, and 2,000 kg (4,400 lb) in transport. It was also produced in a twin-gun mount, the 3.7cm Flakzwilling 43, although this version was considered somewhat unwieldy and top-heavy. The barrel remained basically the same as that of the Flak 18, 36 and 37. Changes in manufacture speed meant that only 1000 man hours were needed to manufacture the cannon, compared to the previous 4320 man hours.
