The subject of this article, Sd. Kfz 251 Flakwagen, has been cut from the final version of a Battlefield game.
The Sd.Kfz. 251/17 Schützenpanzerwagen (2 cm) was a German self-propelled anti-aircraft vehicle used during World War II. It was a variant of the Sd.Kfz. 251 Halftrack armed with a 2 cm KwK38 on a pedestal mounting with a small armored turret to protect the gunner.
The Sd. Kfz 251 Flakwagen was a vehicle cut from Battlefield V. The vehicle was most likely intended to function as a Squad Reinforcement call-in to counter aircraft, similar to the Sd. Kfz 251 Pakwagen. Its Allied equivalent was either the M15 Special or M16 MGMC.
An untextured model can be found in the game files, but the vehicle otherwise lacks any logic for operation in-game. The vehicle was presumably cut early in development.
