The PzKpfw V-IV Alpha is a tier 6 medium tank using the hull of the Panther with the turret of a PzKpfw IV. Due to its smaller turret, its turret traverse rate is higher than standard or modified turret variants. A downside to the V/IV Alpha is its small 75mm KwK cannon, which lacks good gun depression. Because of its small gun size and big chassis, it packs the same punch as an Mk.4 Panzer. An upside is the tank's low profile and fast turret traverse rate.
- It is basically the same as the pre-order PzKpfw V-IV, except that this was a gift tank for moderators, developers and other contributors (including wiki editors). Instead of a German Wehremacht sign, there is an Alpha sign on the hull of the tank.
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.
