Description

This is an injection-plastic military vehicle model kit.

From the manufacturer:

Panzer III (designated as Sd.Kfz. 141) was the common name of a medium tank that was developed in the 1930s by Germany and was used extensively in World War II.

The Panzer III was intended to fight other armored fighting vehicles and serve alongside the infantry-supporting Panzer IV; however, as the Germans faced the formidable T-34, stronger anti-tank guns were needed. Since the Panzer IV had a bigger turret ring, the role was reversed. The Panzer IV mounted the long-barreled 7.5cm Kwk 40 gun and engaged in tank-to-tank battles. The Panzer III became obsolete in this role, and for most purposes was supplanted by the Panzer IV. From 1942, the last version of the Panzer III mounted the 7.5cm KwK 37 L/24, better suited for infantry support. Production of the Panzer III ended in 1943, with a total of around 6,000 being manufactured.

With this model kit, you can assemble the Panzer III into a Ausf J, M, or N variant. It also comes with two gun choices with detachable turret and side armor skirts (Schurzen).

Molded in dark gray plastic; includes decals.
