German Army, Germany

Krauss-Maffei Flakpanzer Gepard   4.25"   1.75"

Like its World War II namesake, the Flakpanzer 38(t), the Gepard was based on the hull of an existing tank, the Leopard Main Battle Tank (MBT). The Gepard's hull remained almost identical to the Leopard original, aside from a slight increase to the distance between the third and fourth road wheels resulting in a slightly longer hull. The turret is the major change from the Leopard and houses dual 35 mm Oerlikon KDA autocannons. As well as the full 360 degrees rotation of the turret, the guns can be elevated to almost a 90-degree vertical angle. Each gun has a 550 rounds per minute rate-of-fire, with a combined rate of 1,100 rounds per minute. The cannons work in conjunction with the radar systems and a laser rangefinder. An MPDR-12 Doppler surveillance or 'Search' radar is mounted on the rear of the turret. This revolves 60 times per-minute and has a range of 15 kilometers (roughly 9.5 miles). It is mounted on a swinging arm. When in use it is raised, when it's off it is lowered. This radar searches for targets in the assigned airspace. When an aircraft is pinged and identified as hostile, the Doppler 'Tracking' radar mounted on the nose of the turret takes over. This radar can rotate 180 degrees left and right and also a range of 15 kilometers. Once it is locked on, it automatically tracks the target in azimuth, elevation, and range.
