Flak Trains at Linz, Austria

Analysis of imagery from reconnaissance sorties flown over Linz, Austria between September 1944 and April 1945 revealed two Flak trains deployed around the city. The trains, with heavy 10.5 anti-aircraft guns on special railcars, supplemented fixed anti-aircraft sites defending the city and a large steel complex, the Reichswerke Hermann Göring. The trains, each with four guns, were deployed at sidings in the Wegscheid and Schweigau quarters southwest and east of the city center, respectively.
