Does anyone know if there are any 35mm Oerlikon GDF cannons in the UK, wikipedia alludes to the fact that there could be 15 or so captured from the Argentines after Op CORPORATE and I was hoping that someone might know where one could be located?
I have a vague recollection that one was bundled up to return to 33 / DEODS for the museum, but it never arrived there. Not helpful I know, but there must be one or two knocking about in UK as trophies.
Yup-one RAuxAF Regt Sqn was formed and equipped with the Skyguard system. As you say, SDR did for it: a good example of the gun is sat in the RAF Regt Museum at Honington, nr Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk. Viewing is by appointment through the Regimental Secretary Wing Commander Martin R. Hooker RAF (Retd) firstname.lastname@example.org
