It's just as the title says. If anyone has this document, or one for the 37mm Flak 18/36/43 would be amazing.

Good luck! If I may ask, what do you need it for?

Ha, I get that question a lot. There's a gaping hole in German 37mm AA ammunition and gun specifics, so I'm looking to rectify that.

I suggest you post your request on this board because if there's anyone who has that that's where you'll find them.

Thanks, I'll try them out.

I know this is pretty disingenuous, but this was the first thing that came up.

https://www.forum-der-wehrmacht.de/index.php?thread/40682-3-7-cm-flak-m-42-l-69/&l=2

By registering I was able to find these pics, no idea on the actual document though. I know a bit of German, and with the powers of Google Translate to help I can look more into this thread.

In addition, one of the posters pointed into this for more info.

That last 925 mps velocity one on the second picture is the rare and elusive *Minengeschoss* round developed for the 37mm Flak M42.  This round, and other rounds of the *Minengeschoss* type, have the ability to make them superior to the 40mm Bofors (except in range or armor penetration). If you knew this, cool. Either way, thanks a lot!

Well, can always learn something new, even if it's a bit obscure ammo capabilities. :Smile-_tongue:

As I mentioned above one of the posters mentioned this site for more info by Anthony G. Williams.
