The German term Flakpanzer was used for "anti-aircraft tanks" - modified tanks that were intended to target aircraft. The Flakpanzer I was a conversion of the Panzer I Ausf. A tank. It was developed in 1941 with an aim to create a mobile anti-aircraft vehicle that could follow the Panzer divisions. 

The Flakpanzer I was armed with the 2 cm FlaK 38 L/112.5. The vehicle was capable of towing a Sonderanhänger 51 trailer which carried ammunition and spare barrels. The Flakpanzer I had a high rate of fire and accuracy, but it proved to be more useful against ground targets other than aircraft and was used mainly for infantry support. The insufficient armour resulted in high casualties and the only battalion that was equipped with the Flakpanzer I's was wiped out during the Battle of Stalingrad in 1943.

This kit includes clear parts and photo-etched parts.
