The PzKpfw III (Panzerkampfwagen III) is a German medium tank designed by Daimler-Benz AG. The first tests of the vehicle took place in 1936. The construction of the PzKpfw III consisted of four main modules: the turret, the front of the hull, the rear of the hull with the engine compartment cover and the lower hull. The first version of PzKpfw III – Ausf. A – was produced in May 1937. Soon after, the Ausf. B and C versions also entered production. Ausf. D version was introduced in January 1938. Early PzKpfw III models were prototype vehicles and were not suitable for mass production on a large scale. They were powered by Maybach HL 108 TR petrol engines with 250 HP. They were armed with 37mm guns and three MG-34 machine guns (two in the turret and one in the hull).


"Another great volume in the TopDrawings series from Kagero...The ten profiles give some great inspiration for a modeler seeking to recreate something different from the normal offerings and the drawings are a boon if you are all about the details. Another worthy addition to the bookshelf!"


"...will be of great interest to modelers planning to model of a version of this tank in any of the 3 scales featured in this book."

- AMPS Indianapolis

"The color center section contains eight side views of various camouflage schemes of tanks used at Stalingrad (1942 summer scheme) and 1943 Kursk."

- Historical Miniatures Gaming Society

"I found the drawings in this book to be fascinating and very detailed, ideal for any modeler as reference materials."
