The Siebelfähre 40 Leichte Flakkampffähre is a Rank III German anti-air ferry with a battle rating of 2.7 (AB/RB/SB). It was introduced in Update 1.79 "Project X" in the fleet closed beta test.

General info

Survivability and armour

Talk about the vehicle’s armor. Note the most well-defended and most vulnerable zones, e.g. the ammo magazine. Evaluate the composition of components and assemblies responsible for movement and maneuverability. Evaluate the survivability of the primary and secondary armament separately. Don't forget to mention the size of the crew, which plays an important role in fleet mechanics. Tips for preserving survivability should be saved for the “Use in battle” section.

If necessary, use a graphic template to show the most well-protected or most vulnerable points in the armor.


Write about the ship’s mobility. Evaluate its power and maneuverability, rudder rerouting speed, stopping speed at full tilt, with its maximum forward speed and reverse speed.


Primary armament

The 4 x 20 mm Vierlingsflak C/38 cannons are the star of this ship, capable of shredding apart any type of ship, at least at low tier. The ammo doesn't really matter.

Secondary armament

The 37 mm is rather useless compared to the primary armament, but can be used to peg weak ships at a distance.

Anti-aircraft armament

The primary armament is anti-aircraft.

Usage in battles

Hide behind a rock near the capture points and rake anything that tries to cap. Can also flank.

Pros and cons


  • Flak cannons kill everything.
  • Almost invincible to guns of tier 3 ships and below as well as aircraft mg's and low caliber cannons


  • Bombers can kill this ship when un-upgraded, as you're slow.
  • Torpedoes are very hard to dodge at close quarters.


Describe the history of the creation and combat usage of the ship in more detail than in the introduction. If the historical reference turns out to be too big, take it to a separate article, taking a link to an article about the vehicle and adding a block "/ History" (example: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.


An excellent addition to the article will be video guides, as well as screenshots from the game and photos.
