Flak jackets vs. bulletproof vests. - By Brendan I. Koerner - Slate Magazine (654 words)
During the Korean War, when these flak jackets were first used en masse, an Army report concluded that the vests reduced the number of chest, back, and abdomen wounds by up to 70 percent.
Flak jackets, however, were far less effective at stopping arms fire, especially from rifles.
Even without the plates in the pouches, the flak jacket is supposedly strong enough to stop a 9 mm bullet, meaning it's at least somewhat worthy of being called a bulletproof vest.
German Anti-aircraft Flak (728 words)
The Germans produced an incredible number of Fliegerabwehrkanone or "Flak" guns to protect their troops in the field and eventually to provide a moderately effective system of radar directed Flak and searchlight systems to protect their major industrial cities, in particular those of the Ruhr valley.
Flak was the nightmare of bomber crews as it wasn't predictable, you couldn't see it coming and if you swerved to avoid the bursts in front, you could just as easily fly into the next set of shells.
The 37 mm medium Flak guns were served by 7 or 8 men and were towed behind a truck or the German version of a half-track.
