    Pzkpfw Ausf E

    The first large scale production variant of the Pz III, it standarizated the maybach 265 Hp engine along with a new torsion bar suspension with 6 roadwheels in each side. This system was somewhat complicated for a medium/ligh tank but gave a very soft ride even in the worst terrain. That torsion bar became the standar for the following variants.



    Other recognizable characteristicas of this variant were the fully covered armored glass equipped commander cuppola and its modified engine cover. The armor was 30 mm thick in all sides with exception of horizontal surfaces.



    Main weapon was still the K.w.K of 37mm, using 37x252R compatible ammo with the infantry Pak 35/36. Guderian asked for this variant to have a 50mm weapon but that was not yet available. 3x MG 34 with armored barrel were used against infantry and soft targets. The tank carried 5 crew, 121 rounds of 37mm and 3350 cartrigdes of 7,92 with S.m.K ( Spitze mit stahl Kern) armor piercing bullets. For foot patrol outside the vehicle the panzermen had a submachinegun Mp 40 carried in the turret walls along with 9 magazines each with 32 round of 9mm ammo.

    Very good, I think that is a F variant wich is almost the same as the E.

    As everybody can see here, the torsion bars had a shock absorber in the first roadwheel.

    Thank you, thank you.

    Ausf F.

    The following variant was in fact no much different of the early E. The main advantage was the finally the later tanks had the 50 mm L/42. Unfortunately of the Panzerwaffe, none of the 50mm armed tank were available for the "fall Gelbe" operation, invation of France campaing.





    The 50 mm tank had one of its coaxial MG 34 removed.

    Ausf G.



    Variant introduced in October 1940. Standarization of the 50mm gun and the emplacement ( not always) of smoke dischagers in turret sides.
    The base 30mm armor was reinforced with aditional 20 mm thick plates in front turret and glacis, plus 20mm spaced "vorpanzer" in the drivers/ mg gunner front.

    Good close up to the aditional armor.



    Inside turret, view from the loader seat. ( the loader in the german tanks seated at the right of the gun, so he need to use its left hand to guide projectiles into the chamber)


    The tank carried 99 cartrigdes for the 50 L42 gun, 3700 for the 2 MG 34 and 320 for 9mm submachinegun.
    Models ausf E, F and G were mostly manufactured by MAN, Henschel, MIAG and Daimler Benz.

    Firepower of the K.w.K 50 mm.

    Penetration table for the "short" L42 gun. The muzzle velocity of the panzergranate 39 Armor Piercing balistic caped high explosive tracer was 690 meters per second.

    Fortunately for the Panzerwaffe there was still a good provition of tugsten core ammo, The panzergranate 40 APCR-T ammunition left the barrel at 940 meters per second and that kind of ammunition amounted for the 25% of the magazine in the Panzer III.



    View of the KwK L42, note the spent case bag and the coaxial MG34. the breech was semiautomatic, meaning that it automatically opens after the shot cocking the firing pin and it closes when the cartrigde is introduced.

    Image of the cartrigde used by KwK 50mm L42. The case was aproximately 290 mm long. Projectile weight varied between 1,15 to 1,4 kg.

    This 50mm round really looks mingy if compared with a 75mm or even the 88mm shells.

    Tauchpanzer III



    The preparation in late 1940 for the invation of the UK involved the modification of several tank for special purposes.
    The tauchpanzer III was intended to operate up to 15 meters deep, air was supplied by a floating snorkel attached to a hose. The tank was fully sealed by inflatable rubber joints. It was succesfully tested ( there was some minor leaks buty nothing important) in late 1940 and early 1941.

    After the cancellation of the Operation Sealion the Tauchpanzers were directed to the East.
