sWS (Schwerer Wehrmachtsschlepper) or Heavy Armed Forces Tractor, was a simple half track vehicle developed and used by Germany from 1943 to 1945. It was designed to replace the SdKfz 6 and SdKfz 11. Initial release was unarmoured and like a lorry resembling the SdKfz 11, later versions were semi armoured and looked like the Sdkfz 251 in front with lorry like flatbed. Side and rear panels are make with wood planks. Later versions had the side panel made with metal screen and an additional storage container overhanging the rear panel. It was this version that the 37 mm Flak 43 auf sWS was developed. The side panel can lock flat horizontally so that there was more space for the gun operators to move around. Fully armoured versions were also developed to carry the Nebelwerfer 42. An improved version continued to be produced by Tatra in Czechoslovakia after the war.

Although some sources indicated that the only known variant developed from the sWS was that carried the 37 mm Flak 43 and the Nebelwerfer 42, there existed a photo of a sWS carrying a possible 2cm Flak Vierling. Whether this was a field convertion where the crew put the whole 2cm Flak Vierling with sled onto the sWS or factory standard production is unknown.

This 1:144 German 2cm Flak Vierling auf sWS features a late semi armoured version sWS chassis with a quad 2cm AA gu. Side panels can be flipped down to the horizontal to serve as an operation platform. AA gun can elevate and transverse freely.
