Product Description

PANZER III Brief History:
The Panzer III was developed following specifications released by Heinz Guderian. The Army Weapons Department drew up plans for the medium tank based on Guderian’s specifications, and manufacturers such as Daimler-Benz, MAN SE, Krupp AG, and Rheinmetall AG began producing prototypes.  The first model of the Panzer III was unveiled in May 1937 as Ausführung A. (Ausf. A), and two years later, mass production began.  For the first two and half years of World War II and before the advent of the Panzer IV, the Panzer III medium tank, officially known as the Panzerkampfwagen III, served as the main battle tank of the German forces.
The Panzer IIIs were among the first tanks to use torsion-bar suspensions. The Panzer III was built with a three-man turret, just like the British Vickers Medium tanks. This feature allowed complete concentration by the commander while executing tactics on the field, and thus the Panzer IIIs had a combat advantage–very few other tanks had three-man turrets.
Following their commissioning, Panzer IIIs were used extensively during the Second World War. They performed in the invasion of Poland, the Fall of France, Operation Barbarossa and the Battle of Kursk in the Soviet Union, and the North African campaigns. At the time of the Poland and French campaigns, they were the best medium tanks of the German Army.
During the North Africa Campaign, they faced the M3 Stuarts and Crusader cruisers of the Allied forces. The Panzer III could sufficiently engage these tanks, but fell short in capability against Matilda tanks and M3 Lee tanks. Following the losses and subsequent defeat of the German military at the Battle of Kursk, the Panzer IIIs were replaced by the more advanced Panzer IVs and were tasked with minor roles.
They were slowly retired from active duty and by the time the war ended, the last of them had been sent to German tank factories where their assault gun chassis were used to manufacture the most largely produced German tank destroyer and the most successful self-propelled guns of World War II, the stuG IIIs.
From its first mass production in 1939 to the last in 1943, about 5,775 Panzer III Ausf. As were produced, with 14 variants labeled A through N. The Ausf. N, the last of the Panzer IIIs, was designed for anti-infantry and backup roles. It was fitted with a 7.35 cm KwK 37 L/24 cannon, which early Panzer IVs used as their main armament.
