The Germans developed one called the "S" mine or the Schrapnellmine 35 (SMi-35). The SMi 35 was buried with just its igniters protruding above ground or connected to trip wires, when buried in the ground, with a set of wires sticking up. When the wires were tripped, the mine exploded and shot up a charge about 4 feet into the air that exploded. The charge was not very large and contained approx. 350 small steel balls or metal that would inflict injuries to soldiers. Since it jumped up into the air, this allowed the secondary explosion to cause more damage, it would cover an area of nearly 200 yards.

WW2 Scarce German 3,7cm KZ40 U-Boat Flak 37 Ammunition dated 1942
This is a scarce German round 3,7cm
KZ40 U-Boat Flak 37 maker marked and dated 1942, the round has an extra long brass
shell case which were used on the u-boats. This round came from a box which had
been stored for many years and the bases on all the shell have corroded.
By late 1943, the new and much more powerful 37mm Flak gun made its debut. This was a navalized version of the German army Flak 37 which was quickly adapted and installed on U-boats. Problems were encountered with the 37mm gun as well, as it was very sensitive to seawater and frequent stoppages meant that it had to be serviced regularly. Finally when this too proved inadequate to thwart air attacks, it was recognized that U-boats were unlikely to win combat engagements with aircraft, and the best defence was to spot an aircraft in time to crash dive to safety.

Each of the four mounted guns had a separate magazine that held only 20 rounds. This meant that a maximum combined rate of fire of 1,400 rounds per minute was reduced practically to 800 rounds per minute for combat use – which would still require 10 magazine swaps per minute on each of the four guns. The guns could be fired in pairs (diagonally opposite) or simultaneously, in either semi-automatic or fully automatic mode. The effective vertical range was 2200 meters. It was also used just as effectively against ground targets as it was against low-flying aircraft
