PANZER III (LATE) PLATOON (x5 plastic tanks schurzen)
includes five plastic Panzer III (Late) tanks, one Decal sheet and four Unit cards.
The 7.5cm gun version of the Panzer III proved an able support weapon but by the summer of 1943, despite its long and proven battle record, the tank was starting to show its age. To remedy this, it was uparmoured to bring it up to date.
Ideally, the panzer divisions were meant to have two battalions of Panthers and one with Panzer IV tanks. While the tankers waited for the production lines to catch up with this demand, the units had to make do with older, but uparmoured, Panzer IIIs.
