Flakpanzer IV/3cm Flakvierling

History: The Wirbelwind armed with the 2cm Flakvierling 38 was seen as a temporary solution, allowing the quick conversion to Flakpanzer of Panzer IV, returned from the front for overhaul.  The limitations of the weapon wree already known, and the Ostwind replaced the Wirbelwind before the end of 1944.  To increase the effectiveness of existing Wirbelwind, a 3cm Flakvierling 103/38 was to replace the 2cm at the earliest possible time.  However, only one prototype was built by Ostbau in December 1944.
