FLAK item Getriebe Transmission

Hi All,

we found an item which was said to be from a FLak.
It was used in an factory to lift heavy materials.
The power to turn the transmission came from an external electric motor (engine).
I found an image which shows the transmission on a FLAK.
What was its task? Where did the power come from to turn the transmission.
Is there by chance a teach movie for FLAK helpers and officers.

Many thx for your suggestions.

Best

Many thanks,
SNAUTZER !
I am highly surprised, that the manual of a German FLAK is in English.
I have only 2 answers: Post war translation or early espionage. ??
Regards

As the Allies advanced into German held territories, captured equipment was examined and manuals were translated, along with POW interrogation.

Great explanation for my suggestions re the English manual, thx a lot Ed.
Just now i learned that the Flak 88 was not only an antiaircraft gun but also an anti tank and anti bunker gun.
