World of Tanks Pz.Kpfw. IV Ausf. H - 8 Kills 3,1K Damage
Medals received: Radley-Walters' Medal, Pascucci's Medal, High Caliber, Top Gun
The Pz.Kpfw. IV Ausf. H is a German tier 5 medium tank.
The G variant of the Pz. IV was produced starting in May 1942. In April 1943 production began on the H variant—eventually the most massively produced version of the Pz. IV. The Ausf. H shared the upgraded gun of the Ausf. G, and utilized a single 80-mm front glacis plate instead of layered plates. A new transmission slightly reduced vehicle speed but was more reliable. The tanks of this variant also featured side screens, 5–8 mm thick, on the hull and turret sides. A total of 3,774 vehicles of the Ausf. H were built.
This tank is in essence a long range M4 Sherman, combining excellent accuracy with good gun depression, vision, and rate of fire. While not as fast as the the Pz.Kpfw. III/IV, the Pz.kpfw. IV is still about as mobile as the M4 (as well as having better hp/weight ratio), and has the option of 2 top guns: the accurate 7.5cm KwK 40 L/48 gun, or a superior 10.5cm KwK L/28 howitzer compared to the Sherman's.
An interesting fact about this tank is that the pre patch 8.0 PZ IV (with the Schmalturm and L/70) was one of the very first tanks modeled in the game, along with the Tiger, T-34, and others.
The Pz.Kpfw. IV Ausf. H leads to the VK 36.01 (H), and the VK 30.01 (P).
