You know that:

  • The development of the Wirbelwind as a successor to the obsolete Möbelwagen did not begin until 1944, because at the beginning of the war, German troops, due to air superiority, were not concerned about attacks by Allied aircraft on the rapidly advancing Wehrmacht units ?
  • The original design was for a closed armoured turret, which did not prove successful in the tete-a-tetes, as none of the soldiers were able to last more than 60 seconds in a turret full of fumes from rapid-fire guns ?
  • The production was first entrusted to the Krupp company, which assembled gun turrets on decommissioned, broken or otherwise battle-damaged Panzer IV tanks ?
  • In April 1944, a film was made for A. Hitler demonstrating the combat capabilities of the Wirbelwind, who after watching it ordered its immediate deployment to all anti-aircraft units ? 
  • After the bombing of German industrial plants, the production of the turret was moved to Teplice and the final assembly to the Famo plant in Wroclaw ?
  • Only 5 vehicles were assembled in Wroclaw because almost all parts and raw materials for the assembly of the other units were missing ?
  • In total, about 112 units were produced ?
  • The soldiers called the tank's turret "Keksdose" (biscuit box) because of its shape ?
  • The manually rotating turret could be covered with a tarpaulin in case of bad weather ?
  • the wide barrel sight setting allowed firing at air and ground targets at a rate of up to 1,800 rounds per minute ?
  • The first combat deployment took place on 12 June 1944 in Normandy, where the inexperienced crew managed to shoot down two Allied fighters in the first day ?
