Historical Background:

The Sd.Kfz. 7 was a half-track military vehicle used by the German Wehrmacht Heer, Luftwaffe and Waffen-SS during the Second World War. (Sd.Kfz. is an abbreviation of the German word Sonderkraftfahrzeug, "special purpose vehicle". A longer designation is Sd.Kfz. 7 mittlerer Zugkraftwagen 8t, "medium towing motor vehicle 8t".)

The Sd.Kfz. 7 also became the basis of a number of self-propelled anti-aircraft variants based on 20 mm and 37 mm flak types in use. The Sd.Kfz. 7/1 was armed with a 2 cm Flakvierling 38 quadruple anti-aircraft gun system.


It's faster and cheaper than the Flakpanzer, making it easier to position (it's also available in 1940 instead of 1944, so it can be used in a lot of games where the Flakpanzer can't). Open Crew is a weird penalty but with this thing's AI values not one that's a complete deal-breaker. I like to make sure to use cover whenever possible- with 2/2 defense it's really vulnerable to enemy fire.
