?|The Panzer Selbstfahrlafette IVc, the "Toaster," or "Flak Bus," is a unique tank destroyer, as it receives two 88 mm guns, giving it formidable firepower for a tier 5 tank destroyer. It is also exceptionally mobile, with a top speed and traverse speed rivaling that of the [[Tank:StuG III Ausf. G|StuG III G]]. However, it has absolutely no armor and is a massive target, which means that it performs its best supporting allies from a sniping position, far away from the action of the battle. Moving in too close will get this machine destroyed in very short order.+

?|InTheGame_performance= It should be noted, that the Flakbus does have some inherent characteristics that give it a very unique set of ways it can be exploited. The very high gun elevation, for example, allows it to be on the forward side of a hill (rather than behind it, like hull-down tanks play) and still be able to engage even targets on a higher hill in front of it. The effect of the downward slope gives the Flaktoaster the gun depression it normally lacks, but does make it very exposed if there are no bushes to hide behind. +

?It's a good sniper, but you must be aware of taking any damage. It's armor can be penetrated even with tier I guns. The best strategy is to hide when some tanks are coming, and show yourself when the danger is gone. +

?|InTheGame_pros= +
?* Very high top speed and insanely quick traverse speed; Eliminates flanking as a threat and allows for quick relocation+
?* Best gun elevation in the game ( 90° when fully upgraded! )+
?* The top 88mm gun can easily punch through even tier VII tanks and has good Alpha+
?* Very easy grind to top gun+
?* One of the most accurate tier V Tanks ( Good for sniping, it's primary role )+
? +
?|InTheGame_cons= +
?* Pitifully thin armor will be torn to shreds by HE shells+
?*Significantly less p/w ratio than Stug III+
?* Gun arc becomes very narrow with the top gun; Depression is also an issue.+
?* Very fat, boxy and easy to spot ( Makes the paper thin armor even more annoying )+
?* Top 88mm gun does not carry over into other TDs down the line+
? +
?|InTheGame_research=+
?* The FuG 8 radio carries over all the way from Marder II, mount it immediately+
?* Research the short 88 and the upgraded engine, the stock suspension can handle the weight+
?* Go from there+

?|History=+
? The history of the Flakpanzer fur schwere FlaK began in 1941 when the Waffenamt ordered yet another heavy Panzerjager vehical. the 8.8cm K (Pz Sf) auf Sonderfahrgestell. The chassis was also know as the Pz Sf IV c. A special version of the 8.8cm L/56 was planned to be mounted in an open turret carried by the Sonderfahrgestell. Later. It was envisaged to mount the L/71 version of the 88cm PaK. The chassis were built, but the requirement for this Panzerjager was cancelled and the chassis were used for the development of the heavy FlaK vehicle. In 1944, the FlaK41 was mounted, and plans were in hans to mount the Geraet 42. Krupp also proposed this as the chassis for the 10 5cm leFH43 Waffenträger.+

?'''Specific features:'''+
? The Sonderfahrgestell was based on the Pz Kpfw IV, but was a very much modernized vehicle. The Flakpanzer could lower the superstructure sides to allow 360° traverse. New, wide (520mm) tracks were used in conjunction with Schachtellaufwerk (interleaved suspension).+
