Flakpanther

Article about: Another new one for me, i'd have thought a Panther would be far more valuable as a battle tank, surely obsolete tanks would have been better suited in the flak role!...

    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    I've seen this before. I think it's called something like the Flakpanzer V 'Coelian'. From what I've heard none were actually built, or maybe just a prototype. But, two 3.7mm AA guns would be rather devastating.

    Coelian, i've heard that name before but didn't realise it was this vehicle!...

    yea, it's this one. Apparently there were (supposed to be) two variants, one like this with twin 3.7mm flak and one with a single 5.5mm flak. But, I guess they needed the panther chassis for tanks for some reason!
