Panzer 3M

Post by Destroyer500 » 13 May 2022 14:33

Does anyone have any kind of personal accounts or reports about the Panzer 3M in combat ?

I personally really like this iteration of the panzer 3.I have seen some various reports about them fighting in Normandy,Kursk and Italy but i want some further info.Were they effective at the years they were fielded ? Did the armor hold up ? Everything you can find send.Thanks in advance

I also always liked the look of this variant, although it was rapidly becoming inferior by late 1942.
Please get a copy of Jentz‘s „Panzertruppen“ for many statistics and combat accounts.
And you could do a forum search.

yes, that is the second volume, 1943-45. There also is a first volume dealing with 1933-42.
