Hi Cantacuzino,

The AA gun depicted in the last photo you posted is a 20mm Flak 30, with an early production flash hider.
You can see a couple of interesting Flak 30 pictures taken in the island of Crete here (scroll down): http://home.online.no/~vestil/crete/heer/

Just a question: what happened with all the radars after 23.08? Were they confiscated by the Soviets? Did Romania remained without any radar system - and if it was so, until when?
As a matter of fact, more questions! ;)

From what I have seen so far, there were no Freya radars in Romanian hands. Thus the radar capabilities of the Romanian AA defense were limited to Wuerzburg targeting radars.

Is there any evidence that Romanians operated Freya radars?

No, only the germans operated the Telefunken FuMG-401A LZ Freya radars and Telefunken FuSE-65 Wuerzburg-Riese.

Romanian used only the (small ) wurzburg FuSe 62 radars toghether (as integrated sistem) with KG 40 ( control unit) and 88 Krupp AA guns.
In 1950 there were still AA units with wurzburg + KG 40 + 88 Krupp, mostly used for training.
I will post soon some pictures from 1946-1950 period.

I thought so. Then this detail should be pointed out when mentioning the Wuerzburg radars operated by Romanians. Most people don't make the difference between Wuerzburg and Freya. They see the word "radar" and a round screen with a line rotating on it pops into their minds.

I've tried to do something for the history of romanian radars (see the topics I've started). But it is not the case of this site. I'm sorry.

P.S. Thank you for some information.

Does anybody know what type of trucks/tractors Romania army used to tow the AA guns, especially the heavier ones like 88s or Vickers 75 mm?
