The FlaRakPz 1 Roland 2 is a rank VII German self-propelled anti-aircraft vehicle with a battle rating of 10.0 (AB) and 9.7 (RB/SB). It was introduced in Update 1.89 "Imperial Navy".

General info

Survivability and armour

Describe armour protection. Note the most well protected and key weak areas. Appreciate the layout of modules as well as the number and location of crew members. Is the level of armour protection sufficient, is the placement of modules helpful for survival in combat?

If necessary use a visual template to indicate the most secure and weak zones of the armour.


Write about the mobility of the ground vehicle. Estimate the specific power and manoeuvrability, as well as the maximum speed forwards and backwards.


Main armament

Give the reader information about the characteristics of the main gun. Assess its effectiveness in a battle based on the reloading speed, ballistics and the power of shells. Do not forget about the flexibility of the fire, that is how quickly the cannon can be aimed at the target, open fire on it and aim at another enemy. Add a link to the main article on the gun: {{main|Name of the weapon}}. Describe in general terms the ammunition available for the main gun. Give advice on how to use them and how to fill the ammunition storage.

Additional armament

Vehicle do not have additional armaments

Machine guns

Vehicle do not have machineguns.

Usage in battles

Arcade Battles

The FlaRakPz 1 in Arcade battles is generally very simple. It does not have any secondary weapons such as an autocannon or machinegun which essentially bounds it to stay in the spawn point for the rest of the battle unless taken down. The missiles have very good explosive power however they arent very fast so they arent very good in dealing with fast and mobile targets such as jets or planes. On the other hand, in Arcade Battles this problem does not exist at the rank in which it will serve, as it will only see helicopters which are much slower and less nimble than planes are, essentially the perfect targets for the FlaRakPz. Unfortunately, other SPAA of its rank can easily do the same thing if not better than this vehicle, especially the Tungushka with its 8 missiles and quad 30 mm cannons. With only missiles in hand, this tank should never engage enemy vehicles at all unless they are aerial targets, instead seek to play close allies or in the spawn or in open areas where you can have the best view of the skies in the map.

Pros and cons


  • Has access to the ground-to-air Roland missiles
  • The missiles are very manoeuvrable
  • Good mobility and armour for an anti-aircraft vehicle
  • Can shoot down planes and choppers from very long range


  • No extra cannon or machine gun
  • Compared to other nations, the missiles are a slower
  • The missiles cannot be used to destroy tanks
  • Can only fire 2 missiles before it needs to reload
  • Lack of cannon makes shooting planes at close range very difficult


Describe the history of the creation and combat usage of the ground vehicle in more detail than in the introduction. If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/ History" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/(Vehicle-name)/History) and add a link to it here using the main template. Be sure to reference text and sources by using <ref>, as well as adding them at the end of the article. This section may also include the vehicle's dev blog entry (if applicable) and the in-game encyclopedia description (under === In-game description ===, also if applicable).


Excellent additions to the article would be video guides, screenshots from the game, and photos.
