Early versions of Pz Kw IV.........

Post by tigre » Sat Jun 06, 2015 7:40 am

Hello to all :D; a little query.....................

A Pz Kw IV Ausf. B or C?

The publication "Panzer II vs 7TP: Poland 1939" specifies the armored in the second photo as a Pz Kw Ausf. B of the 1. Le Div, however looking at the first photo showing a Pz Kw Ausf. B, I think it rather is a Pz Kw Ausf. C (2nd photo) What do you think? ......................
