The Flakpanzer 38(t) represents an early step towards a tank-based SPAA. Taking the reliable, but now obsolete, Panzer 38(t) chassis, the crew compartment and superstructure was modified to accommodate a 2 cm Flak 38 AA gun. Work began in late 1943, with 141 completed in total, which were sent to Wehrmacht and SS divisions stationed in France and Italy.
The ADGZ was developed for the Austrian army in 1934, with around 27 given over to the army and police by 1937. Once Germany took control of Austria through the Anschluss in 1938, all examples of the ADGZ were seized, being given to SS and police units.
