Historical Info

The Pz.Kpfw. III/IV represents an attempt to integrate the development of the Pz.Kpfw. III and Pz.Kpfw. IV vehicles.

On September 14, 1941, Chief of Stab Rüstung 11a approved the specification of the tank, a combination of Pz.Kpfw. III and Pz.Kpfw. IV chassis leichte Panzer Jaeger (later renamed the Panzer IV lang (E)). As the engine had passed the test of time and war, the Maybach HL-120TRM was chosen and connected to the transmission SSG-77. The driving wheels of the Pz.Kpfw. III were used and reinforced output shafts were added. The chassis consisted of six rollers 660 mm in diameter on the board, semi-detached on the leaf springs in pairs. New symmetrical tracks 540 mm wide with a central ridge were chosen. Sloth - from the tank Pz.Kpfw. IV, but strengthened and expanded. Plans were to increase cruising range by placing an additional 300 liter fuel tank in the engine compartment.

The front part of the body was redesigned. The top 60 mm thick armored plates got an inclination of 60 degrees to the vertical, the bottom plates were 60 mm thick, with an inclination of 45 degrees to the vertical. The turret was a slightly modified version of the one one used on the Pz.Kpfw. IV Ausf. J. The construction of the turret excluded rotary electrical contacts at the base, opting instead to use a flexible electrical cable. This limited the traverse angle of the turret to 270 degrees right and left of the longitudinal axis. Ammunition was increased to one hundred rounds of 75mm cannon and up to 3,150 rounds of machine-gun rounds.

In March 1944 Wa Pruef 6 signed a contract to build three experimental tanks Pz.Kpfw. IV auf Einheitsfahrgesyell. In June 1944 it was decided to launch full production at Krupp-Gruzonverk, but on July 12, 1944, the Krupp firm was informed about the cancellation of the Pz.Kpfw. III / Pz.Kpfw. IV program.
