A Panzer III at 1/32 scale

The Panzer III of Petite Infanterie was built to consider all the versions which have existed. Indeed, three type of turrets were built sporting the 37 mm, 50 mm and 75 mm guns. Eventhough, it was not sufficient to keep it in the front line as quoted in Wikipedia:


"It was intended to fight other armoured fighting vehicles and serve alongside and support the Panzer IV; however, as the Germans faced the formidable T-34, more powerful anti-tank guns were needed, and since the Panzer IV had more development potential, it was redesigned to mount the long-barrelled 7.5 cm KwK 40 gun. The Panzer III effectively became obsolete in the anti-tank role and was supplanted by the Panzer IV. From 1942, the last version of Panzer III mounted the 7.5 cm KwK 37 L/24, better suited for infantry support"
