World of Tanks Pz.Kpfw. IV Ausf. H – 8 Kills 4,1K Damage
Medals received: Radley-Walter’s Medal, Lehvaslaiho’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 ranged M4 Sherman, combining excellent accuracy with good gun depression, vision, and rate of fire. While not as fast as the Pz.Kpfw. III or the Pz.Kpfw. III/IV, the Pz.kpfw. IV is about as mobile as the M4, as well as a better hp/weight ratio, and can use both the accurate, decent DPM 7,5 cm KwK 40 L/48 gun, but also has an improved howitzer 10,5 cm KwK L/28 howitzer that is better in all aspects but accuracy (where it is equivalent), compared to the Sherman’s.
An interesting fact about this tank, the pre version 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).
