This is a SUPERB and VERY RARE example of a 100% INERT WW2 German Wehrmacht/Luftwaffe 3.7cm FlaK AP Round, as by Germany’s famous FlaK 18, FlaK 36 and FlaK 37 Anti-Aircraft Gun!
The 3.7 cm 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 cannon was fully automatic and effective against aircraft flying at altitudes up to 4,200 m. The cannon was produced in both towed and self-propelled versions. Having a flexible doctrine, the Germans used their anti-aircraft pieces in ground support roles as well; 37 mm caliber guns were no exception to that. With Germany’s defeat, production ceased and, overall, 37 mm caliber anti-aircraft cannon fell into gradual disuse, being replaced by the Bofors 40 mm gun and later, by 35-mm anti-aircraft pieces produced in Switzerland.
Made of solid steel, this is a FANTASTIC piece of history! Completely inert, there are some slight wear, marks, and pitting, however it remains VERY SOLID with much of the original paint and finish! The late-war steel casing is also strong, with various marks throughout. Would make a PERFECT addition to any collection or display!
