Extract from British Intelligence report from WW2:

The well-known German 88-mm dual-purpose Flak 36 has, according to a recent British intelligence report, now been greatly improved upon in the dual-purpose 88-mm Flak 41, which develops, without choked boring, the remarkable estimated velocity of 3,400 fs. The 36 was considered a high-velocity gun with a muzzle velocity of only 2,690 fs. As an antiaircraft weapon, the new gun is believed to have a maximum ceiling of 45,000 feet, and an effective ceiling of 36,000 to 38,500 feet as compared to 32,500 maximum and 26,250 effective, for the older gun. This excellent performance is not the result of firing a lighter projectile. The new shell weighs 22.4 pounds against 21 pounds for the 36. The propelling charge has been stepped up from 5.34 pounds to 11.9 pounds, more than half the weight of the shell.
