Description Extended Information
 
Forces of Valor 80014 German Sd. Kfz. 161 PzKpfw IV Ausf. G Medium Tank with Schurzen Side Armor Skirts - 5.Panzer Division, Eastern Front, 1943 (1:32 Scale) "If the tank succeeds, then victory follows."
- Major-General Heinz Guderian, "Achtung Panzer!"

Just one month prior to the commencement of "Operation Typhoon" (the German assault on Moscow) the Waffenamt was scheduled to begin installing the long-barreled 7.5cm KwK gun on its new Mark IV Ausf G tanks. However, when the Wehrmacht encountered the superior Russian KV-1 and T-34 tanks during the summer campaigning season, a decision was made to mount the 7.5cm KwK40 L/43 gun onto as many existing Mark IVs as possible. Since the new gun fired larger rounds than the short-barreled gun mounted on the F1 tanks, ammunition storage capacity had to be increased and the crew compartment had to be re-arranged to accommodate the modifications.

This particular 1:32 scale replica of a German PzKpfw IV Ausf. G medium tank was used on the ostfront (eastern front) and attached to the 5.Panzer Division. Sold Out!

Historical Account: "The East is Red" - 5.Panzer Division was formed in November 1938 at Oppeln. It fought in Poland and France before supplying Panzer Regiment 15 to the then forming 11.Panzer Division.

It participated in the Balkans Campaign before being transfered to the Eastern front where it fought on the central sector. It took part in the drive against Moscow and later fought at Kursk in 1943 before being pushed back into Latvia, Kurland and finally East Prussia where it surrendered to the Red Army near Danzig in April 1945.

Great detail March 10, 2011
Reviewer: Dr. Gary from Milton, ON Canada  
I am very pleased with the presentation of my Panzer IV. I was a little disappointed at first by the fact that mine is a reissue and has a different paint scheme than the one pictured on the site, but it is still a great model and looks good sitting on my desk next to its Russian counterpart! Motorpool was fast with shipping, I will buy from them again.
