Flakpanzer IV Wirbelwind

The Wirbelwind was developed as a more capable self-propelled anti-aircraft gun than the Möbelwagen. The Wirbelwind's turret armor provides a significant advantage when used against ground targets.

Flakpanzer IV Ostwind

The Ostwind uses the same 3.7 cm Flak 43 anti-aircraft gun as the Möbelwagen. It has the added advantage of the main armament being mounted in a turret, providing the crew with protection from small arms fire.
