Hallo I found a statistic about the German Flak in WW2. The result is so absurd, that I think it can not be true: The Quartermaster General of the Air Force calculated a consumption of 16,000 rounds with the “8.8cm Flak 36” and 8,500 rounds with the “8.8cm Flak 41” for the downing of a four-engine bomber. The 10.5 cm Flak 38 required an average of 6,000 rounds and the heavy 12.8 cm Flak 40 3,000 rounds. That means: To get a B-17 down you must shoot up 86,7 tons! And please consider: The bomb load of a B-17 and 86,7 tons of grenades which will fall from the sky too! Thi
