Flames of War: Hungarian Nimród Self-Propelled Anti-Aircraft Gun (Late-War)

The Swedish designed Landsverk Anti-II self-propelled anti-aircraft guns were made under license in Hungary as the Nimród. The Hungarians had well and truly field tested them in 1942 and the crews were well versed in the use of this anti-aircraft weapon against Soviet ground attack aircraft.

The Hungarians adopted the Swedish Landsverk L-62 anti-aircraft tank design in 1940. It was seen as a duel purpose weapon that could serve in both the anti-tank and anti-aircraft role. It shared many common features with the Toldi tank (L-60), which the Hungarians were already producing.

The Hungarians purchased one Swedish built L-62 in 1940 and tested it with the mobile troops who were generally pleased with its performance and the MÁVAG Company brought the licence to produce it in 1940.

The Hungarians made a few improvements to original L-62 design. The 40mm Bofors anti-aircraft gun remained its primary armament, but MÁVAG used the Hungarian manufactured version that they already produced. The turret was enlarged, allowing the 4 crew more room to operate, and modified to allow the 36M 40mm Bofors gun maximum traverse and elevation. The turret armour was increased to 28mm.

The first vehicles were delivered in 1940, with a total of 135 Nimród ordered between 1940 and 1941. They saw their first combat action against the Soviets in 1942 where, even with an improved anti-tank round developed for it and the 40M 40mm anti-tank gun, the T-34 and KV’s heavy armoured often proved too much.

The Nimróds carried the registration numbers H050-095 (first batch) and 1H630-718.

This pack contains one Nimród (40mm) Self-propelled Anti-Aircraft Gun.
