Panzer IV Ausf G

Regular price £4.99 Sale

 The Panzer IV model G was an upgrade of the previous model the Ausf F. During its production run from March 1942 to June 1943, the IV G went through further modifications, including another armor upgrade which consisted of a 30mm face-hardened appliqué steel plate welded (later bolted) to the glacis—in total, frontal armor was now 80 mm thick.This decision to increase frontal armor was favorably received according to troop reports on 8 November 1942, despite technical problems of the driving system due to added weight causing the tank to be very front heavy. The gun was now fitted with a double muzzle brake instead of the single fitted on the Ausf F
