Let's stick to serious posts in this section and leave the jokes for other sections.

Does anyone have a detailed breakdown by weapon type and location for various points in the year? I'd love to find out just how extensive were the defenses of Ploesti and Bucuresti. I've the numbers of batteries, but never even a breakdown of how many 88mm batteries vs. 37mm batteries.

On 1 August 1943, there were were 36 heavy Flak batteries (164x88 mm guns) and 16 light batteries (210x20 or 37 mm guns) around Ploesti. Note that the 20 mm were quadruple and that it's why there are so many light AA guns for fewer batteries.

I enjoyed reading your messages, I am very new here and I yet dont know much about this forum . Do you have the possibility to dispaly more photos on the Rumanian AA Divsion 5th Regiment and German 189 AA regiment at Ploesti and Campina ?

Can I ask you if you know where all Radars and telemetrical stations were positioned at Ploesti and Campina ? I know that South East of Campina was one Wuerzburg Radar and various AA stations ranging from 13- 88 mm

Also I have seen a caterpillar train protect the refinaries , what guns they had on board, I seen one picture on Ebay of this train but was of the 1944 train and not in 1943
