Bofors-MAVAG Anti-aircraft Artillery (Hungary)

The Horthy regime, hoping for a quick German victory on the Russian front in 1941, hardly anticipated a drawn-out struggle, particularly with the United States. But the American participation was soon felt not only on the Eastern front, where US supplies and weapons played an important role, but also by the many bomber raids aimed at military and industrial targets. The Bofors-MAVAG 800mm AA gun above, hidden in a cornfield, was a component of Hungary's limited air defenses.
