Historical information

Panzer III was the common name of a medium tank that was developed in the 1930s by Germany and was used extensively in World War II. The official German designation was Panzerkampfwagen III SdKfz 141 (abbreviated PzKpfw III) translating as "armoured fighting vehicle".

It was intended to fight other armoured fighting vehicles and serve alongside the infantry-supporting Panzer IV. From 1942, the last version of Panzer III mounted the 7.5 cm KwK 37 L/24, 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.

The Ausf.J model had a solid 50-millimetre (1.97 in) plate on the front and rear. This additional frontal armor gave the Panzer III frontal protection from most British and Soviet anti-tank guns at all but close ranges. The sides were still vulnerable to many enemy weapons including anti-tank rifles at close ranges.
