Italeri 1/72 Flakpanzer Wirbelwind – Scale Model
The Panzer IV was the most extensively used German tank during the Second World War. It represented the “backbone” of the German Panzer Divisions on all operational theatres. Toward the end of the war, based on the Panzer IV hull, the self-propelled anti-aircraft gun Wirbelwind was developed to improve the air-defence capability of the ground troops against the Allied air-superiority. From the second half of 1944, the Flakpanzer IV Wirbelwinds were assigned to the anti-aircraft units of the German armoured and motorized divisions. The Panzer IV’s turret was removed and replaced with an open-top turret and armed with a quadruple 20 mm Flak 38 L/112.5, which provided a rapid-fire and good firepower. The Wirbelwind was quite effective against low-altitude attacks of enemy fighters, but it was also used against lightly armoured ground targets such as infantry, trucks and armoured cars.
