Flames of War, Wirbelwind (GE165)

Battle Front is coming out with the Flames of War Wirbelwind (GE165).  The Wirbelwind (Whirlwind) was the second German production vehicle to mount an anti-aircraft gun on the chassis of the Panzer IV tank also known as the Flakpanzer.   The first production Flackpanzer was known as the Möbelwagen and lacked both a turret and the twin guns.  These were used against troops, light vehicles and airplanes.   With their high rate of fire, it was known that when these were in the fields, fighters and fighter bombers tended to look for easier targets.
