Germany's quest for a higher volume of anti-aircraft fire didn't end with their FlaK38. In 1940, the FlaKvierling was born. The FlaKvierling 38 was combination of 4 FlaK38 barrels on one mount, and it could fire a staggering 1800 rounds per minute. It had a gun shield to protect the crew, could be towed by most trucks and half-tracks, and could be set up very quickly. The FlaKvierling was mounted on various chassis including the Panzer IV and Sd.Kfz.7 half-track to create self-propelled anti-aircraft units. Likewise, several guns were mounted on captured allied equipment that were no longer of any use on the battlefield.
