Notes from our tech department:
This is a 1/35 Plastic Flakpanzer Gepard West German Anti-Aircraft Tank from
Tamiya. This kit is for modelers age 10 and over.

Basis of the Gepard weapon system is the remarkable Oerlikon-Contraves
35mm which was developed and put into production in the early 1960s. To combat
modern jet aircraft approaching on the battlefield at tactical attack heights,
a very high rate of fire was needed coupled with a high muzzle velocity. The
35mm calibre was found to be the optimum size for the best combination of
weapon weight and effectiveness.
