According to someone in a FB Panzer group I'm in on the 27 February 1944 Hitler ordered that use of Roman numerals was forbidden to be used on future tanks, that is why there were no more after the Pzkpfw V Panther. The apparent reason for this was the surrender of Italy in September 1943, now I'm inclined to think this is rubbish but as the person concerned gave a specific date i'm just wondering if there is any truth to this. Thx for any help.
