Kugelblitz - By the end of WWII, the German Armed Forces developed a revolutionary Anti Aircraft tank on the Panzer IV chassis. The gun turret features a fully enclosed armoured ball turret in which the gun crew rotated and elevated together with the twin 30mm flak guns. This enables building a turret with minimum space.

Pilot production of five units has been completed. As the Panzer IV chassis was about to stop, plans where made to adapt the turret to 38(t) chassis but never materialized.
Today one surviving turret was displayed at the Lehrsammlung der Heeresflugabwehrschule Germany.

38D - In October 1944 German Panzerkommission decided to standardize future Panzer production to use only 3 types of chassis, the 38 (t), Panther and Tiger. Unfortunately the 38 (t) chassis was poorly suited for production by German industries and supply seriously fell short of the demand. A new leichter (light) chassis was redesigned for German production based on the 38 (t). The new chassis would be wider and mounting a new 220 hp Tatra diesel engine. The new chassis was named as 38 D, also known as Pz. 38 “Reich”.

This model of 1:144 German Kugelblitz 38 D 30 mm Zwillingsflak features a Kugelblitz turret on a 38 D chassis.
