WWII PANZER III AUSF J .

 

The box contains parts to make two PANZER III AUSF J . The set number is 99016. This is in mint condition sold as new. There are two tanks in each box designed to be assembled quickly for war gaming purposes. Despite the simple assembly, the mouldings are crisp and accurate, enabling you to field large armour formations at a reasonable price.

As early as 1934/35, General Heinz Guderian envisioned two basic types to act as the main equipment for the future German Panzer Divisions. The first vehicle was to be armed with anti-tank gun and two machine guns and second one was to be a support vehicle armed with a larger calibre gun. The first one eventually became known as Panzerkampfwagen III, which was to be a standard tank for the three light companies of a tank battalion. The second one became known as Panzerkampfwagen IV.

With the appearance of the T-34, rearming the Panzer III with a more powerful L/60 50mm gun was prioritized. The Ausf J version had this longer gun, thicker armor, and some simplified features; in addition, the hull was lengthened. This version was available throughout 1942 and into 1943.
