The Flak Tank is a self-propelled anti-aircraft vehicle based on the Bear Tank chassis. Employed when Soviet Air force assets are unavailable or air-superiority is in the balance, Flak tanks provide essential anti-air protection for the army or mechanized column and can also serve in a ground support role, where they are effective against infantry and light vehicles.
Manufactured in hundreds of Soviet factories, the Flak tank is a specialized vehicle used for mobile air defense, protecting important sites and columns from air assaults. Its linked quad-cannon automated turret contains targeting and tracking equipment, including a predictive logic-engine, which allows it to lock onto and track enemy aircraft regardless of any evasive maneuvering. These control four long-barreled Autocannons firing heavy caliber, high velocity explosive rounds capable of firing six hundred rounds a minute, shredding through enemy aircraft fuselages thanks to their high rate of fire. When used against infantry and light vehicles these rounds are equally devastating, allowing even a single Flak Tank to decimate entire formations in a heartbeat. While the use of a Flak Tanks in this role is a breach of official regulations, Soviet commanders often overlook such infractions.
The quad Autocannons are operated by dedicated gunner, who sits in the turret along with a loader to assist the auto-loaders, while the vehicle commander, driver and a communications operator sit in the main hull.
