I'm a German military vehicle tank enthusiast and I was having trouble finding some information on the tanks in the title.
I know kinda about the The panzer III/IV that is was a cross between the Panzer II and the panzer IV trying to find a vehicle to combat the T-34 more or less.
But that's where the search ends. I know that the Other two vehicles were experimental but its still hard to find information on them.
If you guys know any more information about these 1-3 vehicles, i would like to know your knowledge and where your getting the information on these vehicles.

I believe that the "panzer III/IV" you are refering to is actualy the 8.8cm paK43 auf Fahrgestell panzerkampfwagon (sf) also known as the Nashorn. This is not a tank. It is self propelled antitank gun on a hybred III/IV chasis. The same chasis was used for the Hummel self propeled howitzer.
The "panzer IV/V" may be the Panzer IV/70(V) sdkfz 162/1 which was a tank destroyer.
I have no information on a Panzer V/VI.
Hope this helps.

it was a recovery Panther D fitted with the turret from an early Panzer IV H used by the 653rd in Silesia during mid/late 1944, the turret was fixed in place so the tank was employed in the same way as a stug which the unit was equipped with before getting the Elefant. The vehicle in front is as Marshal said one of the Tiger P tanks, it was supplied to the unit for use as a command vehicle and as far as I'm aware the only one to make it into active service.
See here for a plate of a Panzer IV/V combination.
