There were some 8.8cm Flak units in North Africa that were given a panzerJaeger role and removed their anti aircraft aiming equipment. They also did not take their range finders and predictors with them, do we know which ones?

I am assuming I./33 but possibly others also..... :?:

Hi,

here three pics of the 8.8cm Flak. It could be a unit with a panzerjaeger role.

In the anti tank role for sure.

Shame there are no markings on the SdKfz 7, but what a great photo of the camo scheme!
Cheers: Dave.

You mean ground support role. ;)

Are you sure that the Flak would not have taken their AA equipment? I find that hard to believe, since it was all Luftwaffe. The dedicated AT units with 88s which we see e.g. in France 1940 were Heer units.

The picture at Halfaya shows I./33, I believe?

All the best

Not exactly. My understanding is that they removed the AA equipment. Presumably because it was superfluous in the AT role, or was a hindrance.

Hi all,

can you tell me what you mean with "AA-equipement" ??

All parts of the gun were also used to fire ground targets.
