Description
 
The 5 cm FlaK 41 was50 mm anti-aircraftgun produced for defending intemediate zone above the light, 37 mm guns' range, but below the ceiling of the heavy, 75 mm and above, pieces. Development of the gun,although started in 1936 was slow, and the con tract was awarded to Rheinmetall-Borsig only in 1940. The gun was produced intwo models, used for defending important industrial installation s. None of the two was a success and both shared the same faults. The speed of traverse wastoo slow for fast-moving targets and the gun proved underpowered, even though the propellant gave a powerful blast, able to dazzle the aimer even in broaddaylight . Altoge the r 60 of 5 cm Flak 41 were produced, starting from 1941.Some of them were still in use in 1945.
