This dual kit has the hull of a Panther with the anti-aircraft (anti-anything with those big guns) combination of either a 20mm Flakvierling MG 151/20 or a Coelian" w37mm Flakzwilling 341 turret.

The development of a new anti-aircraft vehicle on the Chassis PzKpfw.V "Panther" began in 1944 at Rheinmetall-Borsig. As a weapon, a 3,7 cm Gerät 341 was planned, in a 360 ° tower with a pitch of up to 90 °.  The project was flagged Flakpanzer 341 or Flakpanzer V "Cölian". The project ended at the stage of a wooden tower model with a weapon system located on the PzKpfw.v Ausf.D "Panther" tank chassis.

The project was created within the framework of an acutely necessary program to develop new anti-aircraft tankers against fighter-bombers. On the Pz.Kpfw.V "Panther" platform, an anti-aircraft set of four 20 mm MG 151/20 cannons was to be installed, according to the original plans, to be located in the new tower of Rheinmetall-Borsig.
