Selbstfahrlafette (Sd. Kfz. 7/1)
Fahrgestell des m. Zgkw. 8t mit 2cm Flakvierling






The Selbstfahrlafette (Sd. Kfz. 7/1) für 2cm Flakvierling 38 was used as self-propelled anti aircraft gun. The 2cm Flakvierling 38 had a considerable firepower. The protection of the crew against enemy fire as well as wind and weather was insufficient. The high of the vehicle was a large disadvantage. About 750 to 800 exemplars of this vehicle were made.









All self propelled A. A. guns had the same problem. They were too vulnerable against enemy fire. Beginning around late 1943, the Sd. Kfz. 7/1 got an armoured drivers’ cab and an armour shield in front of the radiator. Actually, the 2cm Flak-Vierling 38 had a gun-shield as series. The gun-shield on this vehicle was demounted to prevent damage during training.
