About the 88mm Flak:
The eighty-eight was used in two roles, one as a mobile heavy anti-aircraft battery, and also in a more static role for the defence of Germany. In this latter role the guns were arranged into large batteries, directed by a single controller, and were moved only rarely. Changes for the FlaK 36 improved mobility at the price of weight, so another set of modifications were made for this role, the FlaK 37. The FlaK 37 used a simpler and lighter trailer design, as might be expected, but also included additional instrumentation to allow the gun layers to more easily follow directions from the single director.
