I would like to suggest giving the 3,7 cm Flaks also the Navys Pzgr. L’Spur as allready found on boats. (As opposed to the normal Pzgr. 18 Aphe.)
The Kriegsmarine had the 3,7 cm Flaks such as Flak 36, 37 and 43 not only on the boats themself, but also for costal defence and some Self propelled ones as well.
While there is no fixed documentation who all got the Navys Pzgr, giving it also to the Heeres vehicles such as the Sd.Kfz. 6/2, Ostwind, Ostwind II, Flakpanzer 341 and all that have yet to come wouldnt be unhistorical, as there where such halftracks also armed, however the tanks and halftrackt in game are depicted as from the Wehrmacht.

It would offer the lower vehicles such as the Sd.Kfz. 6/2 an stronger alternative to the Pzgr. 18 L’Spur as well as an intermediate Ap round befor the H-Pzgr L’Spur for higher Br Tanks such as the above mentioned.

Its an Apcbc 0,7 kg 815 m/s Solid shot. It would trade after Armor effect for higher penetration, while also using a higher charge than the Pzgr. 18 L’Spur (which it also was available with).

Good idea, the post pen is not as useful for spaag’s because the high fire rate. This helps the vehicles to be more useful on ground.

This would really make them effective against tanks! +1

Another possible addition would be the 3,7 cm Gr. 18 (Ansch.) Apbc 0,635 kg 820m/s 0g filler.
(Other guns allready recived Practice and He grenades with different fuze setting as AP grenades, the Gr. 18 (Ansch.) is a high power solid steel flat head with ballistic cap test round (with high power charge (~200g instead of 185g charge, to test the reliability of the gun).

It would also be nice to give the Ostwind 2 a mixed he/apcr belt and the flakpanzer341 a full apcr one to make them usable against tanks like other spaa vehicles at their br

Thats my H-Pzgr. L’Spur suggestion, this is for the Apcbc Pzgr. L’Spur (Navy).
