It was such a potent weapon that everyone in three gun barrel system made in German-controlled factories were of the "88" breed. It is one of the most important artillery pieces of entire conflict.

Wow the museum looks so nice. The weapons are scared but I like to know how they operate.

Wow this multiple-purpose weapon is amazing.

I think the most thrilling part of this museum is exploring the Concorde, and the TU 144.

Intresting job.

A museum which has made its own goal of demonstrating technical history in its full potential,cannot possibly evade the obligation to award its due place to military technology, too. Along these lines, the department of military history at the Technik Museum Sinsheim is focusing its attention on the motorization of armed forces in the Second World War, with the main focusses on tanks, aircraft, trucks, tractors and other utility vehicles.
