2 cm Flak 30 (germany)


Designed by Rheinmetall, the 2.0cm Flak 30 initially entered production for the Kriegsmarine in 1934 and was not accepted for service by the Luftwaffe until 1935. The Flak 30 design was that of an oversized machine gun that operated with an open bolt - it was in fact a direct descendant of the MG-30.

FlaK 30 had seen service in the Spanish Civil War. The 20mm Flak 30 fired a 120-g (4.23 oz) 20-mm HE projectile with a contact detonating fuse. A pyrotechnic relay detonated the projectile after a set time as a safety measure, limiting the effective ceiling to 2,200 m (7,200 ft).

Designed to provide immediate antiaircraft fire against low-flying attack aircraft, its utility as a heavy infantry support weapon was enhanced by 20mm AP ammunition. The FlaK 30 was the most widely used 20mm anti-aircraft weapon in the world by 1940. This accurate weapon saw service throughout the entire war on all fronts where Germany fought.

The 20mm Flak 30 remained in use throughout World War II, even though more modern equipment was subsequently adopted. Later, the 2 cm Flak 38 was designed as a faster Flak.

Ingame the Flak 30 is referred as Flak 38. But above the ammo, it referred as the Flak 30. The speed of this Flak is indeed slower then the 2 cm Flak 38.
