DESCRIPTION The 8.8cm FlaK 36/37 is a German 88mm anti-aircraft and anti-tank artillery gun from WW2 and was widely used by Germany throughout the war.
Officially they were designated the 8.8cm FlaK 18, the improved 8.8cm FlaK 36, and later the 8.8cm FlaK 37. FlaK is a contraction of German Flugzeugabwehrkanone meaning “aircraft-defense cannon”, the original purpose of the weapon. In English, “flak“ became a generic term for ground anti-aircraft fire. In informal use, the guns were universally known as the Acht-acht (“eight-eight”) by Germans and the “eighty-eight” by the Allies.
