Gepard is a German Anti-air unit.
Overview[edit | edit source]
The Gepard is an anti-aircraft vehicle based on a modified Czech Panzer 38 (t) mounting a 20mm AA gun. SPAAGs based on half-track were common but were vulnerable to aircraft themselves. These were a intern vehicle before the delay of Möbelwagen project based on the Panzer IV. Flakpanzer 38(t) were used in the anti-aircraft platoons of the Panzer regiments.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
The Gepard is a weak AA gun and must be used in numbers to even repel aircraft. Due to its cost compared to other armored cars, it is rather impractical as an infantry support vehicle.
