Panzer IV is a German tank.

DescriptionEdit

While not originally intended for armour engagements, the increasing inadequacy of the Panzer III to combat other armoured vehicles became apparent, and the Panzer IV assumed the role. Periodic upgrades and modifications extended its service life, and the Panzer IV became the only German tank to remain in continuous production throughout the war, serving Germany from the beginning to the end.

There are four variants of Panzer IV in Battlegroup42. Both Ausf D and E were equipped with the low velocity 75mm KwK 37 L/24 gun, intended for a role similar to fire support. Ausf E is similar to Ausf D, but with thicker frontal armour. Ausf F2 is armed with the high velocity 75mm KwK 40 L/43 gun for better anti-tank capabilities. The Ausf H is the penultimate production version with the 75mm Kwk 40 L/48 for gun and the addition of side skirts for extra protection.

TriviaEdit

The Panzer IV is used as the base for many other fighting vehicles, which are also represented in the mod. These include the Flakpanzer IV Wirbelwind and Flakpanzer IV Ostwind anti-aircraft tanks , Sturmpanzer IV heavy assault gun , and Jagdpanzer IV tank destroyer.

The Panzer IV Ausf H is heavily modified from the original Battlefield 1942's Panzer IV.
