Shorten automatic air defense in 37 mm M1939 to AAA (to make the name shorter), since it's generally accepted to mean "Automatic Anti-Air", and I'm fine with that. Similarly, we could shorten anti-tank gun in 45 mm M1937 to AT for the reason that it's a generally accepted acronym for "Anti-Tank".

The 7.5 in 7.5 cm Pak 40 should stay as it is because that's how it's done in American English, as this is an American website. I'm not a believer in policies of writing pages in the subject's "native" language format like Wikipedia has.

I'm fine with the rename from Flak 38 to 2 cm Flak 38.
"The gun has played a critical role in history. An invention which has been praised and denounced... served hero and villain alike... and carries with it moral responsibility. To understand the gun is to better understand history."

“What is morality in any given time or place? It is what the majority then and there happen to like, and immorality is what they dislike.” - Alfred North Whitehead
