88mm Flak Performance

Recommended Posts

Combining penetration data at 30 degrees from jentz' Dreaded Threat and the Encyclopedia of German Tanks of World War II:

Early War Flak firing 9.54 kg Pzgr round

97mm at 100m, 93mm at 500m, 87mm at 1000m

Later war Flak firing 10.2 kg Pzgr 39 round

127mm at 100m, 117mm at 500m, 106mm at 1000m

Tiger 88mm firing 10.2 kg Pzgr 39 round

120mm at 100m, 110mm at 500m, 100mm at 1000m

The above statistics suggest that the early war Flak gun fired an inferior round compared to the later war Flak, and the later war Flak was firing at about 810 m/s muzzle velocity compared to 780 m/s for the Tiger.
