I want to say it was a G model with the 50mm KwK 38 L/42, but I expect the 37mm model and hte 50mm L/60 model are done too.

Good, good, the Germans really need a good AT Panzer III for later in its life. However, some of the earlier models with the smaller gun might be appropriate for a French campaign and Weiss.

I feel sudden urge to start a thread suggesting to add flamethrowers to the game... Or to post some pics of the UFO... Hmmm...

RAD has been (supposed) to be working on the PzIII for almost 5 months now (iirc).

Somehow his real-life got in the way of the modeling process and thats why we´re still waiting...

Early 37mm models had 2 Coax MG34s. Which rules. Late L/60 models had very good penetration charecteristics. Mid 50 l/42 models are going to be the saving grace for Afrika.

The 50/L42 PzIII could be kind of like the Battle of France KT :D, with the Pz38 being the main AT tank with the 37mm (which IIRC was a little better than the PzIII 37mm) The 50/L42 and the odd L60 would be great for desert maps. The PzIII 37mm isn't really necessary if the Pz38 is in, there weren't many PzIII's in Poland anyway and the Pz38 is very comparable for FH purposes.

My data shows the Pz38t with a 37mm KwK 38 L/47.5 and the PzIII with the 37mm KwK 36 L/45. Performance is very close to identical with about 2-3mm better penetration going to the 37mm L/47.5

I dont think its enough of a difference to matter in game terms.

Does your data include dispersion as well as penetration? I didn't have any hard data, just anecdotal stuff, and my WW2 Online experience. But you're right, it probably wouldn't make any difference in FH. So we don't really need a PzIII before the G w 50/L42
