PzKpf VII Flak-Kämpfer IV “Flak-Uller II“
As friendly fighters became scarce, many walkers were modified to provide their own air defense. Some Ullers sported twin R98 Flugabwehrraketen (AA guided missiles) launch rack in addition to a battery of four 2cm AA guns.
Modeling Notes: Build a basic Donner chassis and discard the original armament and the arms, and add the twin anti-aircraft guns from the AA Guns Pack (DP9-624) and two guided missles from the Axis Weapon Pack (DP9- 635).
PzKpf VII Ausführung M “Rhino“
This variant, based on a similar Donner model, was armed with a powerful 8.8cm L71 anti-tank gun. The cannon was mounted in a fixed position in the main hull, with aiming taken care of by the suspension.
Later variants featured the 8.8cm KpfK (Kämpfer Kanone) 71, a dedicated side mounted self-loading combat walker weapon that used a sophisticated stabilizing system to absorb the recoil energy of this enormous anti-tank gun.
Modeling Notes: : Use the templates on Page 55 of the original DP9 Gear Krieg book “Fighting Vehicles of the Modern Age” to create the gun barrel and mantel out of styrene stock. Add a pack of grenades and the machinegun box.The pictured model features a 1944 “88er Kämpfer Kanone”. The gun is from a Flames of War Königstiger, all the rest is scratch-build from plasticard.
