Un Cañón de Asalto ''Sturmkanone'' Daimler-Krupp (ex K-Flak 1914), en apoyo de las tropas de asalto ''Sturmtruppen'' de uno de los Freikorps que participaron en la conquista de la República Soviética de Baviera.
A las afueras de Planegg, 15 kilometros al oeste de Munich, Baviera, finales de abril de 1919.

German Daimler chassis Model 1913. Originally manufactured for use as a vehicle and standard anti-aircraft platform.


German Daimler chassis Model 1913. Originally manufactured for use as a vehicle and standard anti-aircraft platform.

A rare German anti-aircraft vehicle: The Daimler Model 1913 tractor (4x4).
Originally manufactured for use as a vehicle and standard anti-aircraft platform.
Here used as a tractor by an anti-aircraft battery (Flak). France, possibly 1915.

It was really a transition vehicle since, in 1914, it was replaced by the Daimler B.a.K (Flak) Model 1914, which represented a notable improvement in terms of armor, design and functionality.

This new Daimler model from 1914 would definitely become the standard anti-aircraft model armed with a 7.7-cm L / 27 Krupp cannon (normally), used by the Germans until the end of the war. Later the Freikorps used it as forceful assault guns: "Sturmkanonen".

A few days ago, on my blog -forget- "Armored Vehicles of the WWI", I published a post about this same vehicle:

Chasis alemán Daimler Modelo 1913. Originariamente fabricado para uso como vehículo y plataforma antiaérea estándar.

Un raro vehículo antiaéreo alemán: El tractor Daimler Modelo 1913 (4x4).
Fabricado originalmente para su uso como vehículo y plataforma antiaérea estándar.
Aquí usado como tractor por una batería antiaérea (Flak). Francia, posiblemente 1915.

Realmente se trató de un vehículo de transición ya que, en 1914, fue sustituído por el Daimler B.a.K (Flak) Modelo 1914, que suponía una notable mejora en cuanto a blindaje, diseño y funcionalidad.

Este nuevo modelo Daimler de 1914 se convertiría definitivamente en el modelo estándar antiaéreo armado con un cañón Krupp de 7,7-cm L/27 (normalmente), utilizado por los alemanes hasta el final de la guerra. Posteriormente los Freikorps lo utililizaron como contundentes cañones de asalto: "Sturmkanonen".

Hace unos días, en mi blog -olvidado- "Armored Vehicles of the WWI", publiqué un post sobre este mismo vehículo:

Russian Oganesov Armored Cars. Two unknown prototypes of 1915.



Russian Oganesov Armored Cars. Two unknown prototypes of 1915.

I have made this "comparative composition" respecting the full visibility of the magnificent drawings of M.M. Oganesov, about his proposal, of two prototypes of armored cars, which I have called, in the absence of being able to know the brand of the chassis on which they would be built, Russian Oganesov Armored Cars (Prototypes of 1915). I want to add, not without pride, that this is the first news that has been given about these unknown Russian armored cars.

José Luis Castillo

P.S.- Apparently, M.M. Oganesov, in 1910, ran a car dealership of the German brand "Dux", on Sadovaya Avenue, No. 17 of Rostov. Did Oganesov think of the Dux chassis for the realization of his prototypes?

Coches Blindados rusos Oganesov . Dos prototipos desconocidos de 1915.

 He realizado esta "composición comparativa" respetando la visibilidad íntegra de los magníficos dibujos de M. M. Oganesov, sobre su propuesta de dos prototipos de coches blindados, que he dado en llamar, a falta de poder conocer la marca del chasis sobre el que se construirían, Coches Blindados rusos Oganesov (Prototipos de 1915). Quiero añadir, no sin orgullo, que esta es la primera noticia que se ha dado sobre estos desconocidos coches blindados rusos.

 P.S.- Al parecer, M.M. Oganesov regentaba en 1910 un concesionario de automóviles de la marca alemana "Dux", en la Avenida Sadovaya, Nº 17 de Rostov. ¿Penso Oganesov en los chasis Dux para la realización de sus prototipos?.
