It’s not easy to stand in front of the venerable Flieger Abwehr Kanonen ammunition, the anti-aircraft gun widely known as FLAK 88, without being intimidated by its size and legend. The FLAK is without doubts the most famous piece of artillery of WWII and possibly of the 20th century. With all these preambles, when the idea of making a 88 Replica came onto our table it was felt as a daring challenge by all the Technoframes Team. How do we keep our quality standard for such a large round? How do we make it? What kind of realism do we want to achieve? What do we know about it? These and many other questions came up and the first year of research and development rapidly passed while visiting museums, inquiring with historians and debating on the proper ways, techniques and materials to reproduce such a historical piece.
But we are the ammo replica World leading Company and we knew compromises were not an option, so after two years of hard work the new humungous Replica saw the light. The result? The most astonishing Replica round we have ever produced!
