WF Icon Wirbelwind

The Wirbelwind is the German armored anti-aircraft vehicle that weighs 22 tons and represents an effective defense against any hostile air units. Based on the Panzer IV chassis, the Wirbelwind packs four 20 mm cannons, and can fire 600 rounds per minute.

BackgroundEdit

Built using the Panzer IV chassis, the Wirbelwind was equipped with four rapid-firing AA guns. Although relatively few Wirbelwinds were produced during the war, they were known to be used against Allied infantry — an ability that is not reproduced in War Front.

BackgroundEdit

  • Pros: Highly economical anti-air defense option that doesn’t drain power supplies.
  • Cons: Unlike AA Bunkers, they're vulnerable even to enemy infantry, and they count toward your Army limit.
  • Bottom Line: A quick, easy solution for anti-aircraft defense at your base early in the game, and almost an essential for any mobile armored force.
