Flakpanzer IV at Aquino

This Flakpanzer IV is currently being restored by the fine folks at the Flakpanzer Restoration Project. I had a chance to see it both last year at the Aquino Tank Weekend and this year, but only in pieces.

  1. Notice how on early German WW 2 tanks they worked hard to insure accessibility to mechanical components for ease of repair. But as armor get's thicker, it get's harder to just add hatches, forcing designers to plan in advance the placement of components such as transmission to the rear were armor was thinner.
