Designed as support tank, the Panzer IV was not originally intended to

engage enemy armor. However, with the flaws of pre-war design becoming apparent

and in the face of Soviet T-34 and KV-1 tanks, the Panzer IV assumed the

tank-fighting role instead of PzIII . The most widely manufactured and deployed

German tank of the Second World War, the Panzer IV was the “work horse”of German

tank’s regiments, used as the base for many other fighting vehicles, including

tank destroyers, self-propelled artillery and self-propelled anti-aircraft guns.

Robust and reliable, it saw service in all combat theaters, and has the

distinction of being the only German tank to remain in continuous production

throughout the war, with over 8,500 produced between 1936 and 1945. Upgrades and

design modifications, often made in response to the appearance of new Allied

tanks, extended its service life. Generally these involved increasing the Panzer

IV’s armor protection or upgrading its weapons. The Ausf. H version, began

production in April 1943 and received the designation Sd. Kfz. 161/2. This

variant saw the integrity of the glacis armor improved by manufacturing it as a

single 80-millimetre plate The 75mm KwK 40 L/43 gun was replaced by the longer

KwK 40 L/48 . The vehicle’s side and turret were further protected by the

addition of 5-millimetre side-skirts and a turret skirt. During the Ausf. H’s

production run its rubber-tired return rollers were replaced with cast steel.

The Panzer IVH was the most widely produced variant with over 3000 tanks

assembled in Nibelungenwerke and Vomag plants
