    These were good, reliable weapons with a high effective rate of fire (220 rpm) and even more lethal when mounted in a quadruple mount as the 2cm Flakvierling 38. Originally the single barrel version was mounted on its own two-wheeled trailer, towed either by a wheeled vehicle such as the Krupp L243 or by a light half-track, but later variants were often mounted on the 1-tonne series of half-tracked carriers (Sdkfz 10).
