Initially it had a 37mm gun and two machine guns , but was planned for future use of bigger guns. It participated in small numbers in the invasion of Poland, but mass production began after the beginning of World War 2, with a 50mm gun. Since the new gun was too weak against Russian T tanks, a more powerful 50mm gun was installed. Later types had an even bigger 75mm gun, same as that of the Panzer IV, with 64 rounds. Production ended in mid , but production of a self-propelled gun version continued until the end of the war. There were also a command tank version and other versions. A total of 15, were produced. Panzer IV A medium tank 25 tons with a crew of five, which was produced since and until the end of the war, and became the main German tank. It carried a short-barreled 75mm gun, later replaced by a stronger long-barreled 75mm gun with 87 rounds , and two machine guns one coaxial and one anti-aircraft on top, with rounds. Its excellent chassis remained unchanged despite many modifications and additions of extra armor, and was also the base for many variants, such as tank destroyers Jagdpanzer IV , self-propelled guns and anti-aircraft guns, and others.
The Panzerkampfwagen III was the first tank built by the Nazi government that was designed for actual combat. See more tank pictures. Production began in , but manufacturing went slowly as Guderian fought the army’s bureaucracy, the Nazi government’s shifting priorities, and a shortage of raw materials and design experience.
Covered are the Panzers I, II, 38(t), III, IV, Panther and Tiger tanks on a variety of war fronts. Also included are detailed data sheets showing line schemes and technical information that offer the most complete and accurate data available.
Highly detailed tank with accurate Track detail and moveable Turret Contains: The project was cancelled with only the blueprints developed, and no units were ever built. Due to the technical construction of the Panzer III and Panzer IV having strong similarities, in September there was consideration to create a new tank based on the chassis of the two tanks to create a perfectly uniform vehicle.
By having uniform designs, it was anticipated that there would be cost reductions in production, supply, training and maintenance. The most striking change was the use of a box drive with large wheels, with a hydraulic pivoting device tower. The vehicle was designed to be equipped with 50mm armour all-round, with 60mm thick armor plates on the front part of the body having a 60 degree vertical inclination on the top and 45 degrees vertical inclination at the bottom. Driving wheels of the PzKpfw III were used with the addition of reinforced output shafts, along with mm wide symmetrical tracks with a central ridge.

It is an opportunity for us to reflect on the language and ideas that represented each year. So, take a stroll down memory lane to remember all of our past Word of the Year selections. Change It wasn’t trendy , funny, nor was it coined on Twitter , but we thought change told a real story about how our users defined Unlike in , change was no longer a campaign slogan. But, the term still held a lot of weight.
The Panzerkampfwagen III/IV (PzKpfw III/IV) was an experimental medium tank project undertaken by Germany during World War II. The tank was designed to use components of both the Panzer III and Panzer IV, in an attempt to integrate the two projects.
Leave a comment Wizard My current spell in Wizard has come to an end. I was part-way through the second Grizzleheim sequence when my time came to an end. All in all it was good fun to play in the Spiral for a bit, and I may very well return on and off. World of Warplanes Very sporadic playing, on the whole. I did manage to achieve my second Ace, which made me smile. I have also gotten a few games in on my second Tier II aircraft, the Demon. I have to say I prefer the Bulldog.
World of Tanks As ever at the moment, this is where the majority of my gaming time took place. There have been other good games too though, and it would be wrong to over-focus on any one particular tank. I am enjoying it very much, even with the stock gun. Very much enjoying it, and thinking I may stick with it for a time too to train up another SPG crew if I choose to keep the GW Panther which I am already thinking about doing.

There has not been very much reason for this, other than generally being busy at home, and busy at work. This has had some benefits. The first has been lots of practice in scout tanking — to admittedly variable success. It does been I am slowly grinding out the Chaffee , as well as getting the crews of the T and both Stuarts further trained 38 games between just those three.
I have also managed to get the Ace Tanker on the T Indeed, having got it once I soon got it again in another match. Personally though I think the first of those matches was the most impressive, with probably some of my best ammo selection ever in game tip — when facing Tier V heavies in a T , use premium ammo. In other tanks I have played a few games on the GW Panther , but I am finding this mostly an exercise in frustration at the moment, though not one without high spots.
German Tank Pack
IV was developed in the mid s to fulfil German Army plans for the fourth “heavy” company in the Panzer Divisions then being secretly formed by the Nazis. In , when the first examples were delivered, the only western tanks with firepower to match it obsolescent french models with tactically ineficient hull-mounted guns. Only had been completed by the outbreak of war in September The Panzer IV wich predated the Panzer III into prodution set the pattern for battle tanks up to the present day, with a centrally mounted rotating turret mounting a heavy gun armament and a co-axial machine gun, a commander’s cupola allowing degree vision, a rear-mounted engine and a forward compartment for the driver and radio operator.
The Panzer IV/70 (A) is a German tank destroyer. Also known as the Panzerwagen /9, before renaming in late Jagdpanzer with a shorter 75mm gun.
It was intended, after certain alterations, to adopt this chassis as a standard vehicle chassis. It was never assembled however as the project had already been abandoned by the Army Weapons Department. In the above programme this vehicle appears as the 7. The output per month was expected to be vehicles as from May AIkett proposed using the same chassis for the The anticipated monthly output was vehicles, Stahlindustrie contracted to supply Artillery SP carriages on this chassis to the Army authorities.
A “schwere Panzerhaubitze” heavy tank howitzer with an accompanying carrier was planned. The monthly output was to be 25 and four vehicles respectively. In addition a “leichte Panzerhaubitze” light tank howitzer and munition carrier for this vehicle were planned.

The Pz Beob Wg IV featured the same commander’s cupola at the StuG III, with seven periscopes instead of the vision slits of the normal Panzer. A SF14Z scissors periscope was fitted, which could be raised without opening the cupola.

Slengineer007’s Guide to the Panzer III/IV
Oberarzt Dr, Wick The 1. Panzer-Kompanie was to be formed from Konpanie Abendroth which was employed in southern Russia. It returned to Germany in mid-March and rather than going to Neuruppin to become the 1. It remained there until 6 July when it was disbanded and the personnel were used to form Panzer-Kompanie Fkl.
The Panzerkampfwagen IV (PzKpfw IV), commonly known as the Panzer IV, was a German medium tank developed in the late s and used extensively during the Second World ordnance inventory designation was Designed as an infantry support tank, the Panzer IV was not originally intended to engage enemy armor—that role being allocated to the Panzer III.
The Panzer IV shared the same basic design as all other German tanks, with the engine at the rear, the drive wheels at the front and the transmission running up the middle of the tank. Its long combat service was result of its excellent design and upgradeability allowing it to meet the changing requirements of the battlefield.
The Panzer IV required a crew of five men. It featured three man turret, with the commander in a central position below the cupola, the gunner to the left and the loader to the right. The driver was placed to the left of the superstructure, the radio operator to the right. The three man turret allowed the German tanks to fire much more rapidly than the one or two man turrets of French and British designs, and helped to make up for their thin armour and relatively poor guns.
Panzer IV Ausf D was truly the first production model and remained in service until It featured new front hull plate design as Ausf A and new external gun mantlet. Knispel was assigned as gunner of a Panzer IV under the leadership of Lt. Hellman and he began his World War II service.
