Some old Swiss advertisings...

The country that avoids war and the country that fights but has a hard time winning have been combined. The Swiss made some excellent firearms and the French made some unique and occasionally inspiring ones. We have added the Belgian and Dutch since they are neighbors.

The Swiss used Bofors guns? The 37mm(think?) became one of my favorites, after reading about the Russo-Finnish Winter War.





Nice pics, thanks for posting:D;

This one is for sale now in CH, you know how wifes can be... :roll:







The one in the ad is a 20mm Oerlikon, most Swiss AA guns came from Oerlikon and W+F.



W+F made some great watercooled 35mm AA guns.

Guisan. :D
