Lore

Some say I got an itchy trigger finger... they were right!
- Gepard

With the initial mission of NATO first rendered absurd, then obsolete in the wake of the 2028 GLA insurrection, many European armies once again changed their operational doctrines back to a heavier, more localized Cold War era home defense mindset. As a result, the German Army decided to re-introduce the trusted Gepard Flak Panzer, whose most recent model was updated with a new fire-control radar and the same 35mm anti-aircraft guns used by the Sky Shield system,which also naturally including the highly effective AHEAD 'cluster' rounds. This allows the Gepard to engage both air and soft ground targets and achieve effective results despite its slower rate of fire, an issue that can be mitigated via the installation of the new Revolverkanone-35 autocannon. In order to protect itself from infantry units that somehow make it past the two massive guns, the Gepard is also equipped with the same close area defense fragmentation grenades as the Leopard which proved to be an effective repellent against the suicide bombers of the GLA in North Africa.
