History

Panzer III was the common name of a medium tank that was developed in the 1930's by Germany and was used extensively in World War II. The official German designation was Panzerkampfwagen III Sd Kfz. 141 (abbreviated PzKpfw III) translating as "armored fighting vehicle". It 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 and T-34/85, 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 7.5 cm 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 Panzer III mounted the 7.5 cm KwK 37 L/24, which was better suited for infantry support. Production of the Panzer III ended in 1943. However, the Panzer III's capable chassis provided hulls for the Sturmgeschütz III until the end of the war.

In Game

The Panzer II cannot be bought, but can be fought in offline mode using a tank near its level. It is upgradeable for those who earned it in the 1.22 update. The Panzer III carries a rapid firing cannon with low damage and no clip to slow down reloading. It can be killed in one or two shots by nearly every tank in the game.
