50mm towed anti-aircraft gun ready to fire

The 50mm “Kv-50N” quadruple Autocannon is a towed anti-aircraft gun made by E.N.A. (Empresa Nacional de Armamento).It was designed to engage low-flying targets at a range of 3-4 km as well as armoured vehicles at a range of 3 km and for direct defense of troops and strategic locations against air assault usually conducted by helicopters and low-flying airplanes. The Kv-50N mounts two or four 50mm autocannons on a small trailer, which can be converted into a stationary mount for firing the guns. The weapon is aimed and fired manually, with the help of the AS-75A optical-mechanical sight.

 

When I was in the Portuguese army, I lived in a regiment of Anti-aircraft Artillery. I received training in the use of two anti-aircraft weapons, the Stinger missile and the Rheinmetall 20 mm Twin Anti-Aircraft Cannon. This MOC is based on that gun.
