Bateria motorowa artylerii przeciwlotniczej typ A

Motorized Anti-Aircraft Artillery Battery type A - Bateria motorowa artylerii przeciwlotniczej type A



A troop of artillery designed for anti-aircraft defence of troops within an infantry division. Batteries did not exist in the peacetime divisional structure. They were formed after the start of the alarm mobilization (24.08.1939) by mobilization bodies of anti-aircraft artillery deployed in the individual corps areas. Only the 13th Battery was mobilized on 13-14 August. The batteries were fully motorized and organizationally self-sufficient. Some of them were used in the state's air defense system and did not join their divisions.

Battery organizational structure:
Commander
Command escort: reconnaissance officer, medical patrol, replacement personnel
communication squad - 2 radio and 1 telephone patrol
4 firing platoons - in each platoon a measuring swarm, a gun operator, a machine gun operator
