Immobile heavy weapon extremely effective against all vehicles. Can shoot down aircraft.

The Flak 36 Anti-Tank Gun Team is a DAK heavy team weapons unit. In multiplayer skirmishes it is available from the Panzerarmee Kommand. It cannot be built on its own and instead, comes towed by a 2.5-Tonne Utility Truck.

The Flak 36 is one of the heaviest AT guns the Axis can field in the game. It can change direction but otherwise is immobile and is completely dependent on towing in order to move.

With damage and penetration rivaling even the heaviest of tank weapons, it is one of few weapons capable of reliably penetrating heavy frontal armour at long range. Upon reaching veterancy level 1 it gains a new active ability Target Engine, which deals damage to a target vehicle while also causing the 'Engine Damaged' state, debilitating it.

While it is arguably the strongest anti-tank weapon the DAK has in their base roster, as mentioned before it is a completely immobile weapon that can only move via towing. Care must be taken as it can easily be flanked, especially as repositioning it will take time and effort compared to a simple move command for most units. Its lack of mobility also makes it an appealing target to artillery strikes, so again care and attention must be paid.

Like any other heavy weapon, it can be de-crewed if the squad is killed outright. The weapon can then be towed, crewed, or destroyed by any other player, including the enemy!

Veterancy Abilities

  • Target Engine: Active ability gained upon reaching veterancy level 1. Fires a round at the target vehicle, dealing damage while also causing the 'Engine Damaged' state, effectively debilitating the target. Basically an on-demand vehicle snare from long range, this will help keep a vehicle in place to ensure its destruction from follow-up anti-tank efforts.
