BB033 German Flakpanzer IV "Wirbelwind" with 2 Crew Figures
4th Company SS Panzer Abteilung 501 - Kampfgruppe Peiper
First Legion is extremely pleased to present the next vehicle in our “Battle of the Bulge” series, BB033 German Flakpanzer IV "Wirbelwind" with 2 Crew Figures. The Wirbelwind was a self-propelled anti-aircraft gun developed by the Germans during WWII based on the chassis of the Panzer IV tank. The turret was removed from the Panzer IV and replaced with a 9 sided turret that carried the quad mounted 2 cm Flakvierling 38 AA gun. Because of it's high rate of fire and armor, the Flakpanzer IV was also used against ground targets including light armored vehicles, trucks, and of course infantry targets. Our model has been produced as part of SS Panzer Abteilung 501, Kampgruppe Peiper. We have produced this model in very limited numbers and as with most of our vehicles, we don't expect it to be around very long. It's a great addition to our Battle of Bulge figure series and something a bit different to what we usually produce.
