Division 7M manned the 40MM and 20MM Anti-Aircraft guns aboard the Battleship TEXAS.
The Bofors 40mm Model 1936 is still in service in some nations. This weapon was used on almost every US and UK warship of WWII and was a very potent AA gun. click here for gun details.
Widely used by the Allied nations, the Swiss-designed 20mm Oerlikon AA MG was probably produced in higher numbers than any other AA weapon of WWII. The USA alone manufactured a total of 124,735 guns. The first USA built gun was test-fired on 8 June 1941 and 379 had been delivered by 7 December 1941. These guns were air-cooled and used a gas blow-back recoil. click here for gun details.
