Pz. Kpfw. III Ausf.N
Availability: RETIRED & SOLD OUT
The Panzer III Ausf.N variant was an “assault tank” that was produced to meet the specific need for a stronger tank that could more effectively take on the Soviet T34. Designers decided to use the short-barreled 7.5cm main gun along with a special “hollow-charge” shell. Additional armour was also included in this model, especially around the turret. Production of these “N” variants began in June 1942 and continued through until August ’43. Just over 700 were built in this time. Most being conversions and upgrades from existing Ausf.L. and Ausf. M. tanks. This new version earned a good reputation from its crews and mostly saw action on the Eastern Front. Some models were also transferred from German stocks to Romania, Slovakia and Croatia after their replacement by more updated German armour. Our K&C model is in typical field grey and comes with a tank commander figure.
