During the early phase of the DAK's Desert Campaign, the 606th FLAK Abteilung was part of the 5th Light Division. The Kfz10 with Flak38 were small halftracks vehicles, which in the conditions of the desert war proved to be of great value, thanks to their mobility and firepower. This kit is from Italeri on 1/35 Scale and Flak 38 is from Tamiya and was painted with Tamiya and Modelmaster acrylics. The figure is Alpine.
With the help of a pair of binoculars, a member of Flak's garrison scans the desert vastness, looking for enemy moves. The Kfz 10/4 has a 20mm cannon, model FLAK 38, which was widely used, not only for air defense, but was also used to land targets. In the Desert Campaign, a FLAK Battalion usually consisted of two heavy batteries, each with 4 FLAKs 88mm and a lightweight battery, with 20mm and 37mm cannons.
