The Flakpanzer IV Ostwind was designed to counter enemy fighter-bombers with it's rapid-firing 3.7cm anti-aircraft gun. While effective against aircraft it also shreds light ground targets making it a deadly and rare vehicle. However, its gun is generally less effective against stronger armor and the vehicle itself is vulnerable to enemy tanks.
