    A very fine gun, it was used in a variety of roles including anti aircraft, and ground targets.
    Absolutely deadly as an anti-tank weapon, it could take out any allied tank with one shot.

    heres some freaky trivia on the 88... the german company that made the 88mm cannon for the Tiger tanks now produces the 120mm cannon used by the US Abrams tank.
