2 cm FlaK 30 - 20x138mm B

The 2 cm FlaK 30 (2 cm Flugabwehrkanone 30) was a 20mm anti-aircraft gun used in the early years of World War 2 by the German armed forces. Due to the Treaty of Versailles it was forbidden for Germany to develop any anti aircraft guns. This is why Rheinmetall ordered the Swiss company Solothurn to develop this weapon in 1930. It was introduced to German armed forces in 1934 but soon it was found that it needed some improvements. It was followed by the similar looking 2cm FlaK 38, which solved most of the problems of the FlaK 30.
