INERT 7.5cm Flak M36(f) (75x516R)
The DTCA (Defense Terrestre Contre Aeronefs) C.75 was a medium AA gun built under licence by Fonderie Royal de Cannons in Belgium just prior to WW2. It was a development of the French CDA Mle 1932 and was built in very small numbers shortly before the outbreak of hostilities. After victory over France and the low countries in 1940 captured examples were pressed into service by the Germans and given designation 7,5cm Flak M36 L/43 (f). The 75mm Flak M36 fired a 6.95kg projectile @ 700m/s and had a rate of fire of 25rpm. It had an effective ceiling of 8000m.
