Het Flak 36 afweergeschut maakte zijn beruchte debuut in een anti-tank rol bij Halfaya tijdens de Slag om Sollum (Operation Battleaxe) in juni 1941.

Vurend vanaf verborgen locaties vernietigden zij 123 van de 238 aanvallende Britse tanks. De Duitsers beweerden met elke afgevuurde "88" granaat een Britse tank te hebben uitgeschakels op Halfaya. De Flak 36 kanonnen werden in Afrika gebruikt als anti-tank en luchtafweer geschut en vormden het gevaarlijkste wapen van het Afrika Korps.

The Fearsome Eighty-Eight One of the most well-known stories of WWII involved an interrogation of a captured British tank crewman after the battle at Halfaya Pass. "In my opinion," he said, "it is unfair to use flak against our tanks." A German artilleryman nearby responded "Fine, but I think it most unfair of you to attack with tanks whose armor nothing but an 88 will penetrate." Starting life as an anti-aircraft artillery piece, the superb anti-tank capabilities of the gun became legendary when they were used to defeat the heavily armored British Matilda tanks in the North African desert.
