Tamiya 1/48 Flakvierling 38

August 12, 2013 · in Armor · · 6 · 1.9K

A very effective and versatile weapons system, and found mounted on everything from battle cruisers to railroad cars. Normally fired in diagonal pairs, it's Mauser 20mm cannons could spit out 800 rounds per minute. Emergency mode allowed all four to fire at once producing 1800 rds. per minute (not my math). That had to be fun, as long as the gunner wasn't staring down a string of Jabos intent on his destruction...
