Another important aspect of the military in the Schweinfurt area was the air defense organization. Flak gun and searchlight positions were established all around Schweinfurt to protect the industrial areas. By the end of the war, some 140 flak guns ranging from light 2.0cm guns to the standard 8.8cm gun were in place, as well as 9 searchlight positions. The photo on the left shows one of the Schweinfurt 8.8cm guns in its dug-in emplacement. The photo on the right, taken during the bombing attack of 14 October 1943, shows the Panzerkaserne, with bomb damage showing from the previous attack in August. The hexagonal features outlined at upper-left are two batteries of 8.8cm flak guns (six guns in each battery), part of the Großbatterie Panzerkaserne, which would eventually number 20 guns and several searchlights, rangefinders, and radar antennas.
