Vickers 75mm Anti-Aircraft Gun

Some years ago I visited the Military Museum situated in Montjuich Castle, Barcelona.

One of the weapons on show was described as being a Vickers M31 75mm Anti-aircraft Gun (which seems to have a lot of mount for not much barrel!).

There was no information available about this gun and its mounting, and it looks very different from any of the photographs that I have seen of the Vickers M31 75mm Anti-aircraft Gun. In fact the mounting looks more like that used for the Krupps 88mm Anti-aircraft Gun, but the barrel was definitely not a cut-down 88mm one!


  1. Likewise, can't find any info on any being sold to Spain - though as Germany took over a lot of the Dutch ones, and this is on a German mount, it's possible.

  2. Xaltotun of Python,

    It is a very odd hybrid, and - as I said in my ofirginal blog entry - seems to be a lot of mount for not much gun.

    All the best,


  3. Hi! I seen info in the net about this gun. Possible it is 7.5 cm FLAK 14. Thanks a lot for nice quality photos!
