The Panzer IV was the most extensively used German tank during the Second World War. It represented the “backbone” of the German Panzer Divisions on all operational theaters. The production of Panzer IV Ausf. F, started in 1941 and marked a decisive boost in the evolution of the tank. It featured an improved armor on the turret and hull.
The first version of Panzer IV F, featuring the traditional 7.5 cm. KwK 37 short-barrelled cannon, were not able to fight successfully against the Soviet T-34 and KV-1 heavy armored tank. The adoption of the anti-tank design KwK 40 long-barrelled cannon, on the Ausf. F2 version, has decisively increased the Panzer IV effectiveness against enemy tanks.
Thanks to its new high velocity and high penetration gun, the Panzer IV became, once again, “lethal” on the battlefields.
