the latter half of World War II, the Wehrmacht, having lost air
superiority to the Allies, turned to the development of anti-aircraft
vehicles. The first vehicle to use the chassis of the Panzer IV tank as a
base was the Self Propelled AA Gun Mobelwagen. The mass-production
model started to be manufactured in February 1944. It was equipped with a
powerful 3.7 Flak 43 cannon capable of firing 250 shots/min, and thick
armored plates surrounding the upper part of the vehicle, which could be
raised or lowered for horizontal firing. By 1945, a total of 240
vehicles were produced, most of which were deployed to the western
front, providing a vicious defense against approaching fighters and
bombers of the Allies.
