Schmalturm for the Panzer V, Panther and Panzer IV


Schmalturm for the Panzer V, Panther and Panzer IV. Narrow Turret or smaller turret, the latest design in turret construction was never put to use. It was meant for Panzer V, the Panthers, existing and upcoming types, and the Panzer IV. If used in the Panzer IV the tank had a real good upgrade in gun for the 75mm Panther gun had a greater penetrating capability and a flat trajectory shot which made it easier to hit enemies. On the other hand it would probably not have fitted on the Panzer IV for the chassis was greatly overburdened in the last years of the war. Photographed at The Tank Museum in Bovington, England 2017.
