The Real Thing in Action
The Panzerkampfwagen IV (Pz.Kpfw. IV), commonly known as the Panzer IV, was a medium tank developed in Nazi Germany in the late 1930s and used extensively during the Second World War. Its ordnance inventory designation was Sd.Kfz. 161. Designed as an infantry-support tank, the Panzer IV was not originally intended to engage enemy armor—that function was performed by the lighter Panzer III. However, with the flaws of pre-war doctrine becoming apparent and in the face of Soviet T-34 tanks, the Panzer IV soon assumed the tank-fighting role of its increasingly obsolete cousin. The most widely manufactured and deployed German tank of the Second World War, the Panzer IV was used as the base for many other fighting vehicles, including the Sturmgeschütz IV assault gun, Jagdpanzer IV tank destroyer, the Wirbelwind self-propelled anti-aircraft weapon, and the Brummbär self-propelled gun. Robust and reliable, it saw service in all combat theaters involving Germany and has the distinction of being the only German tank to remain in continuous production throughout the war, with over 8,800 produced between 1936 and 1945. Upgrades and design modifications, often made in response to the appearance of new Allied tanks, extended its service life. Generally, these involved increasing the Panzer IV's armor protection or upgrading its weapons, although during the last months of the war with Germany's pressing need for rapid replacement of losses, design changes also included retrograde measures to simplify and speed manufacture. The Panzer IV was the most widely exported tank in German service, with around 300 sold to partners such as Finland, Romania, Spain and Bulgaria. After the war, seeking to improve its armored forces, Syria procured PzKpfw IV from France and Czechoslovakia, which were to see combat in the 1967 Six-Day War. - Wikipedia

 photo Panzer4_G_1942_zps0d30eb3d.jpgO Panzerkampfwagen IV (Sd.Kfz. IV) ou Panzer IV foi um carro de combate médio projetado na Alemanha. Numericamente, foi o carro de combate mais importante e empregado pelas forças alemãs. Foi produzido até o final da guerra, pois não foi desenvolvido um veículo economicamente viável que pudesse substituí-lo. Seu chassi foi empregado no desenvolvimento de inúmeros veículos blindados, indo desde blindados de reparo á veiculos blindados anti-aéreos. O Panzer IV, assim como o T-34 soviético, sofreram diversas modificações ao longo da guerra, ganhando inumeras variantes. Foram fabricadas mais 9.000 unidades entre todas as versões. Panzer é uma abreviação de "Panzerkampfwagen", um substantivo Alemão que se traduz como "Veículo Blindado de Combate", que na Inglaterra e nos Estados Unidos convencionou-se chamar de tanque. Tornou-se sinónimo dos tanques de batalha Alemães durante os anos 30 e 40, e é geralmente designado por sua abreviatura "PzKpfw". Panzers foram usados em ambos os organismos terrestres que compunham as forças armadas alemãs na Segunda Guerra Mundial: a Waffen SS e a Wehrmacht. - Wikipedia
