Details

The German Panzer 3 was the main battle tank during the invasions of Poland and France in World War 2. It served well in it's anti tank roles, but as the war continued the Panzer 3 underwent a series of upgrades in armament and armor; most notably the Ausf. J with it's 50 mm KwK 39 L/60 main gun (and on some models) armored side skirts. These changes came in response to the Russians formidable T-34, but with these improvements the panzer 3 was still under gunned compared to newer tanks fielded by other nations. The panzer 3 was phased out to a support role to the panzer 4 and panther tanks, and served well in that respect until the end of the war.
