German nouns r awesome

German nouns are awesome. I think Wikipedia mistranslated this one, though, so I’m going to try. Flugabwehrkanonenpanzer is “flying [things] defense cannons tank”. (“Panzer”, btw, doesn’t mean “panther” (and, boy howdy, does it not mean “cheetah”), it means “armor”, from the French “pancier”, breastplate.)
