   Wirbelwind Flak Panzer Veterancy



  • Wirbelwind Flakpanzers are best used against infantry and emplacements.


Based on the Panzer IV chassis, the Wirbelwind Flakpanzer (real name Flakpanzer IV/2cm Wirbelwind), was built as a replacement for the Flakpanzer 38T. The Wirbelwind's four barreled configuration was superior to the single-barreled 2cm FlaK38 on the Flakpanzer 38t, which struggled when dealing with Soviet ground attack fighters. The Wirbelwind, and all other Flakpanzers, were used as self-propelled, anti-aircraft platforms in Panzer battalions, so that tanks could be guarded against air attacks, even while on the move. Infantry forces had to make due with modified half-tracks that carried anti-aircraft guns instead.
