Description Extended Information
 
Matchbox DYM37582 German Flakpanzer IV Wirbelwind Anti-Aircraft Gun (1:72 Scale) "If the tank succeeds, then victory follows."
- Major-General Heinz Guderian, "Achtung Panzer!"

The Wirbelwind ("Whirlwind") was developed as a mount for anti-aircraft guns on PzKpfw IV chassis that had been returned from the front for major overhaul. They were intended to supplement production of the Mobelwagen, which was slightly more effective in battle. In the autumn of 1944, production of the Wirbelwind ceased, since the 2cm Flakvierling was not proving as effective as the 3.7cm FlaK also being produced. Sold Out!
