Defender windshield _is_ flat. Not sure how "difficult" it is to find, got mine replaced by my insurance company a few years ago (less than 3 years ago) and it took the installation company maybe a week to order it and come to my truck to install it.
Make sure you replace the seal at the same time.
I was told (and will do it if/when I have to pay for it) to ask a local window/glass company to cut one for me, that _should_ be cheaper than buying a replacement. Apparently, this is done commonly for flat-glass vehicules (Jeeps and older trucks/vehicules).
