Panzerkampfwagen III Ausf E

The Panzerkampfwagen III Ausf E was the first mass produced version of the Panzer III, after four pre-production series. It featured a completely different suspension system, thicker armour and a more powerful engine than all of the pre-production machines, and early production was slow. As a result only 98 Panzer IIIs of all models were available to the German army at the outbreak of the Second World War, including most of the seventy five pre-production machines.

The previous three versions of the Panzer III had featured eight small road wheels carried by two or three leaf springs. This system had proved to be unsatisfactory, and so on the Ausf E it was replaced by a completely new system. This features six larger road wheels, and used torsion bar suspension. In this type of suspension a steel bar runs across the width of the tank. One end is securely attached to the side of the tank, while the opposite end is attached to one road wheel using a lever. As the wheel moves up, the steel bar twists, absorbing the shock and smoothing the ride. Torsion bar suspension allowed the wheel to move further than the spring system used on earlier models, as well as being rugged and relatively easy to replace (see the video below for a demonstration of the torsion bar system).

The Panzer III Ausf E was the first version of the tank to definitely use 30mm armour on the front and size of the hull and all around the turret (the last 15 of the Ausf D may also have been given thicker armour). The design of the side armour was changed from the segmented plates used on the pre-production series to a single plate.

The thicker armour increased the weight of the Panzer III to over 19 tons. To compensate for this increase a more powerful Maybach HL120TR engine was used. As a result the Ausf E was just as fast as earlier lighter models. The manual gearbox of earlier models was replaced with a Maybach Variorex pre-selector box, which was more flexible but slowed down production of the Panzer III.

Other changes included the addition of escape hatches on each side of the fuselage and a vision port for the radio operator. When built the Ausf E used the same 3.7cm KwK gun as the A-D, with two 7.92mm machine guns in the turret. Between August 1940 and 1942 a number of tanks had their main gun replaced by the 5cm KwK L/42. At the same time extra armour was added to the hull front and rear and the front of the superstructure.

The Panzer III Ausf E entered service in time to take part in the fighting in Poland, and remained in use for the next three years. A number of them were later converted to act as observation vehicles, further extending their lifespan.

Panzerkampfwagen VI Tiger II

Tiger II byl německý druhoválečný těžký tank. Konečné oficiální německé označení bylo Panzerkampfwagen Tiger Ausf. B, [pozn. 1] často zkracováno na Tiger B. Α] Označení v inventáři munice bylo Sd.Kfz. 182 Α] (Sd.Kfz. 267 a 268 pro velitelská vozidla). Také je známý pod neformálním názvem „Königstiger“ [p 1] .

Tiger II byl nástupcem tanku Tiger I, přičemž kombinoval jeho silné pancéřování se skloněným pancéřováním použitém na středním tanku Panther. Vážil téměř 70 tun a jeho čelní pancíř byl silný 100 až 185 mm (3,9 až 7,3 palce). Β] Byl vyzbrojen dlouhým kanónem KwK 43 L/71 ráže 88 mm. Podvozek se stal také základem pro stíhač tanků Jagdtiger.

Tiger II byl zařazován do výzbroje armádních těžkých tankových praporů a Waffen-SS. Poprvé byl v boji nasazen 503. těžkým tankovým praporem během spojenecké invaze do Normandie 11. července 1944 Γ] . Na východní frontě byla první jednotkou vybavenou Tigry II 501. těžký tankový prapor, který měl k 1. září 1944 ve službě 25 Tigrů II. Δ]


Panzerkampfwagen III Ausf E 2019-02-03

The Panzerkampfwagen III, commonly known as the Panzer III, was a medium tank developed in the 1930s by Germany, and was used extensively in World War II. The official German ordnance designation was Sd.Kfz. 141. It was intended to fight other armoured fighting vehicles and serve alongside and support similar Panzer IV which was originally designed for infantry support. However, as the Germans faced the formidable T-34, more powerful anti-tank guns were needed, and since the Panzer IV had more development potential with a larger turret ring, it was redesigned to mount the long-barrelled 7.5 cm KwK 40 gun. The Panzer III effectively swapped roles with the Panzer IV, as from 1942 the last version of Panzer III mounted the 7.5 cm KwK 37 L/24 that was better suited for infantry support. Production of the Panzer III ceased in 1943. Nevertheless, the Panzer III's capable chassis provided hulls for the Sturmgeschütz III assault gun until the end of the war.

Panzer III Ausf. E - Fifth version of the Panzer III with 30 mm (1.2 in) armour all-round, other than the rear of the vehicle, which increased the weight to 20 t (22 short tons). Suspension redesigned, switching from leaf-springs to torsion-bars, now using six larger roadwheels per side. Had a 300 PS HL 120 engine.

The file contains the unit and pcx files. Model is not my own creation. Wyrmshadow helped with the animation files. I merely put the pieces together and cleaned up the model for CivIII and added some what if pieces. A big thanks to everyone that helped out!

У середині 30-х років німецькі військові стимулювали виробництво танків. Танк, який я спроектував як навчальний танк, не мав належних показників, тому для заповнення пробілу потрібен був легкий танк, поки не вдалося ввести Panzer III. Тому німецьке військове управління видало запит на новий навчальний танк, який можна було б використовувати для бою. Врешті-решт, MAN був обраний у 1934 році для виробництва Panzer II, компактної конструкції довжиною 4,8 м та шириною 2,2 м із екіпажем із трьох людей. Танк вагою 8,9 тонни мав гармату Kwk 30 L / 55 та кулемет 7,92 мм у башті, 15-міліметровий захист для башти та передньої частини корпусу, підвіску з листовою пружиною та двигун Maybach HL 62 TRM потужністю 140 к.с., суміщений із трансмісією ZF SSG46, що дало йому максимальну швидкість 40 км / год. Ausf. A випускався з 1937 року, а потім Ausf. В і С, які було важко відрізнити один від одного візуально. До квітня 1940 р. Було виготовлено близько 1100 танкових танків, і через затримки з танком III вони були негайно видані як основний танк танкових дивізій для вторгнення в Польщу у вересні 1939 р. На основі уроків, отриманих на полях боїв Польщі, а також У травні 1940 р. У Франції були додані такі вдосконалення, як додаткова броня та баштовий купол, і "Танк II" продовжував служити в Північній Африці та Росії на передовій, а також до зв'язків та розвідки до кінця 1943 р. Після цього вони були окуповані поліцією території, а шасі також було пристосоване для використання як основа для різних конструкцій самохідних гармат.

PzKpfw III questions

Post by Sturm78 » 17 Nov 2018, 21:52

I need help to identify correctly these tanks:

Image 1: I think Ausf.G : new driver visor, cuadrangular machinegun mount of radio operator, one coaxial machinegun in new mantlet
Image 2: I think Ausf.F : new driver visor, cuadrangular machinegun mount of radio operator, two coaxial machineguns
Image 3: I think Ausf.E : old driver visor, cuadrangular machinegun mount of radio operator, two coaxial machineguns

I think all these versions (Ausf.E , F , G) had also old drive sprocket (with 8 round holes) and idler wheels
Was the Ausf.H the first version with the new drive sprocket and idler wheels ?


Ekspor [ sunting | sunting sumber ]

Panzer IV termaksud tank yang di-ekspor terbanyak selama Perang Dunia ke-2, tujuan ekspornya tak lain adalah negara sekutu-sekutu Nazi Jerman di wilayah Balkan seperti Rumania ada 11 tank yang di antarkan, ke Hungaria, ada 32 tank yang dikirm, dan yang terakhir adalah Bulgaria ada sekitar kurang lebih 16-18 tank Panzer IV yang telah digunakan oleh Angkatan Darat Kerajaan Bulgaria. Rata-rata Panzer IV yang telah di-ekspor ini banyak hilang di Front Timur pada saat awal 1942-1944 akhir.

Pz Kw III Ausf. E in Poland 1939.

Post by tigre » 08 Jan 2016, 05:46

Hello to all a new topic.

Pz Kw III Ausf. E in Poland 1939.

I did not find much information regarding the employment of the Pz Kw III Ausf. E in this campaign. But Steven J. Zaloga in his work Panzer III vs Somua S 35: Belgium 1940, specifies that a handful of Ausf. E went into action in Poland, because until June 1939 only 19 tanks of this model had been accepted by the Army and at the beginning of the war were available about 50 out of 96 built until October 1939. Having in mind that a total of 87 Pz Kw III of all types were employed in the campaign is a significant percentage (although I think they were concentrated in the instruction unit). According Panzertruppen. The Complete Guide to the Employment Creation & Combat Force of Germany's Tank 1939-45, the units with a large number of Pz Kw III were: the PR 1 with 20 tanks (some Ausf E.?) And the Pz. Lehr Abt. with 37 (most of them Ausf. E?). Does anyone have more details?


Project: DML's PanzerKampfWagen III Ausf. F 1/35

The Panzer III was the premier battle tank of the German army in early WWII. Designed alongside the Panzer IV, it was designed as a breakthrough tank, with good armor (for the time) all around and a cannon designed to punch holes in other tanks, as well as for throwing HE (unlike the PzIV at the time). While there were not many Pz IIIs available for the Polish campaign (less than 100, much of which were pre-production prototypes), more were available for the French campaign, and was a mainstay for Operation Barbarossa, the invasion of the Soviet Union.

Dragon's kit depicts an early model, the F version. This was the 2nd main production version, differing only slightly from the Ausf E version (armored covers for the brake cooling system, and a modified engine). Indeed, at first glance it looks like one could build an E if you wanted to. While many Ausf E's and F's were later remanufactured with the 50mm L/42 KwK, this kit depicts the earlier variant still armed with the 37mm L/45 KwK, as well as twin coaxial machine guns.

I remember Dragon back in the old days, when they were issuing mostly 1/144 aircraft, and a small portfolio of their own original kits: mostly Soviet vehicles that suffer today from inadequate research (this was in the late '80s) and/or toylike features (operating hatches on the BMP, BTR, and BRDM series kits, seriously compromising detail). Later they would being issuing kits using molds from other manufacturers, such as Gunze and Italeri, with modified or reworked parts where neccessary. Eventually they would issue better kits, and this model is a long way from those early days.

If I could use one word to sum up this kit it is complex. I didn't do a parts count, but there are quite a few, along with Dragon's "Magic Track" and a fret of brass photo-etch parts. As usual, Dragon likes to get the most from their molds, and there is always a slight feeling of mix-'n-match with their kits. In this box alone there are sprues from their StuGIII and Panzer IV kits, alongside some sprues from other versions of the Pz III (Like the J model). This also means you sometimes get multiple sprues with the same letter designation. I had at least 2 sprues labeled "A" that were completely different, as well as sprues labeled "B".

Going slow is the way to build these kits, not only because they're expensive (this kit retails for over $60, though I got mine on sale for $26!), but because all of the detail and complexity will reward a slow and deliberate build.

So far I've managed to complete the hull. I still have to mask off the torsion bar axels, as well as a few other areas, in order to prep it for priming. This kit will get the standard dark gray of early war German tanks, so I'll be using a black primer, especially as the dark gray was fairly dark when newly applied. Weathering will do the rest to fade it.

Most of the photo-etch was fairly routine to add, without a lot of complex or confusing bends. Some, however, were pretty confusing to apply, not helped by Dragon's questionable intructions. A big issue was how the two fender supports (the brass bits towards the front in the above picture) attach. It took a great deal of test fitting to get them in there. As one portion rests on the tow shackles, I reccommend installing the towing shackles first, before attaching the PE components. Also the headlights were a bear to install, with very narrow gluing points.

Here is the tail end of this kit. The little brass circles on the rear fenders are cut-outs that allow the fenders to be raised in especially muddy conditions, but allow the night formation driving lights to still be visible. These can be protected as needed by flaps, represented in the kit by either photo-etch brass, or a plastic fender with these already lowered. Using the PE is the way to go for appearance purposes, but it might be less frustrating to just use the plastic piece. I use a slight dab of super-glue to bond the part, but cappilary action seems to have pulled the glue up into the fender seams. This meant I had a lot of difficulty getting a good bond with plastic cement, and the fenders kept falling off! I think I may have it now.

Currently I am working on the commander's cupola (which came from one of their Pz IV kits. not a suprise as they were the same in the real world!), and a failing of Dragon's instructions is once again evident. Assembling the vision blocks was a chore, not because they were difficult or very tiny, but because Dragon's instructions are not clear. I reccommend gluing the vision blocks to the lower ring first -- the tab is supposed to go between vision blocks, before gluing it to the cupola drum. You are also provided with clear parts to make the actual vision blocks, and this will make painting more challenging!
