About the German 88mm Gun Flak 36
Flak 36 anti-aircraft guns made their notorious debut in an anti-tank role at Halfaya during the Battle of Sollum (Operation Battleaxe), June 1941. Firing from concealed positions at short range, they destroyed 123 out of 238 attacking British tanks. The Germans claimed one British tank for every 20 88 rounds fired at Halfaya. Flak 36 guns serving in Africa performed in both anti-armor and anti-air roles, and were indeed the ace-in-the-hole of the Africa Corps.
