88mm FlaK German AA gun
The 88 mm gun (eighty-eight) is a German anti-aircraft and anti-tank artillery gun from World War II. They were widely used throughout the war, and could be found on almost every battlefield. Developments of the original models led to a wide variety of guns. The name applies to a series of anti-aircraft guns officially called the 8,8 cm FlaK 18, 36 or 37. FlaK is a German contraction of either Fl(ugzeug)a(bwehr)-K(anone) or Fl(ug)a(bwehr)-K(anone) (hence the capital K, nowadays one word) meaning anti-aircraft gun, the original purpose of the eighty-eight. In informal German use, the guns were universally known as the Acht-acht (8-8), a contraction of Acht-komma-acht Zentimeter (German: "8,8 cm" - comma being used as the decimal separator in German). The name could also describe newer and more powerful models, the FlaK 41 and 43, although these were different weapons. In general terms the gun was less capable in the anti-aircraft role than the British QF 3.7 inch AA gun or United States 90 mm gun models[citation needed]. Unlike those weapons, however, the 88 was built in very large numbers,[citation needed] and in the anti-tank role it was mounted on a versatile base from which it could be fired without unlimbering.[citation needed] Its success as an improvised anti-tank gun led to a separate line of guns for anti-tank use, the Panzerabwehr-Kanone (PaK) 88 (German: "anti-tank gun") and as the main armament for tanks such as the Tiger I, the 8.8 cm KwK 36, with the "KwK" abbreviation standing for Kampfwagenkanone ("fighting vehicle cannon"). -written by wikipedia <b>THIS IS MOSTLY DESIGNED BY RUBEN ROIJAS.</b> i have built two I like them so much ruben ;) <b>heres a link to his version http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/136952</b>

Quoting Rubén Riojas Nice use of it!!! It seems you've changed the back of the barrel with gears and rims. I like it more with round pieces only. And for the max elevation put it more to the front, because the way you put it looks weird. Last thing; pleasetry making the credit to me more noticeable, like alink to mine or something like that. It just looks somewhat hidden among the info.
I'll do that. sorry if it looks hidden i JUST GOT THE INFO FROM WIKIPEDIA SO THEY HAVE A LOT. How does the max elevation look weird?

Cool! The whole thing looks very well done, although I think the barrel needs a little bit of work.
