Panther with 2cm Flakvierling MG151/20 (4 barrel AA)



Does anybody have a field pic or is this a "Paper Panzer"? I am using a conversion kit from commander models

Cheers
Rick

Pz. Abt 653 had at least one on a D chassis, which was photographed. The same unit that did a bunch of weird conversions like the T34 quad flak, etc.

As far as I know they used a regular Flakvierling 38.

If you are referring to this one on the left:


Then I doubt it was even a prototype, maybe only a drawing.

Yes the one on the left was only a paper project and the right one was planned.Only a wooden mock up turret was made.
