Medium Tank: Pz.Kpfw. IV Schmalturm

Pz.Kpfw. IV Schmalturm

In November 1944 the Krupp company presented several avant-projects aimed to upgrade armament of tanks and tank destroyers in service. Among them there was a project of mounting a Panther's Schmalturm (tight turret) on the Pz IV Ausf. J. The project was canceled due to phasing out the Pz IV production.

Characteristics for a vehicle with basic configuration and a crew with 100% qualification.
