Default 8,8 cm KwK 43 L/71

Hi, does anyone here have the details about the King Tiger gun? I need high resolution drawings, cross sections and data such as the twisting rate of the rifling, depth of the rifling...

Hi Peter,

I have an article in Waffen Revue, "Die 8,8 cm Kampfwagen-Kanone KwK L/71 fuer den "Koenigstiger"; PM me your mailing address again and I'll send it to you. It's too long to scan. I think it has most of the details you're looking for.

Best,
Greg
