G32 PzV PzIV ausf Alfa/Sidebar

The PzKpfw V-IV Alpha is a German tier 6 premium Medium tank that was a gift tank to moderators, developers and other contributors. It is based on a PzKpfw V Panther hull with stock turret from the PzKpfw IV. Many players think its similar to a buffed PzKpfw III/IV. It has great mobility, decent acceleration and is well armored for its tier. Its weakness, however, is that it has no gun depression, so in hilly terrain it is a large disadvantage because even a small bump can make a big difference in its ability to hit the target or not. As a result, it is best to fight on flat ground. Additionally, the gun is consider sub-par for its tier, so it is recommended to always flank and target the enemy's rear and side, or to resort to HE shells.

Historical Info

From July to September 1942, MAN produced two prototypes, only one of which was fitted with a turret. (It is believed that this turret was taken from a Panzer IV with its 75mm KwK 40 L/43 gun. All future Panther tanks mounted at least the 75mm KwK 42 L/70 gun. This tank is the one listed above and is sometimes referred to as the V2.) These were extensively tested and proved prone to many technical problems. At the same time, a first order for 1,000 tanks was placed, with the first tank expected in early 1943. In late 1942, a small pre-production series of 20 tanks was ordered. This was the Null-Serie, or Zero Series. Those 20 tanks were designated Panzerkampfwagen V Panther Ausfuehrung A and were technically different from later Ausf A production models. All were lightly armored with 60mm frontal armor and armed with the early version of the 75mm KwK 42 L/70 gun. This gun had a single-chamber muzzle brake from the 75mm KwK 40 L/43 gun and was mounted in a turret that featured a drum cupola that bulged the turret on the left side.

For further information on the development of the Panther, please read about the Panther.

An early model Bergepanther fitted with a bolted on PzKpfw IV Ausf H’s turret (that could not be traversed), served as a command tank of Schwere Heeres Panzerjager Abteilung 653 on the Eastern Front in early-/mid-1944.
