Temporary hold to all Overseas Shipments via Royal Mail international export services.
Royal Mail is experiencing severe service disruption to its international export services following a cyber incident. It means we’re temporarily unable to dispatch items to overseas destinations via Royal Mail services.
Items that have already been despatched may be subject to delays. Royal Mail's import and UK operations continue to perform a full service, with some minor delays. Royal Mail is working to resolve this disruption. We’re really sorry for any disruption this may cause.
All overseas orders will be dispatched once the temporary hold has been lifted. (We are currently looking into an alternative shipping solution and will ship items if/where it's possible to do so).

Dragon Armour 60452 – 1/72 Panzer III Ausf.N w/Schurzen – 2.Pz.Div. – Kursk 1943

£29.95

 

Pz.Kpfw.III did well to serve so long in WWII.

It was obviously supplanted by the Panzer IV and later the Panther in the tank-versus-tank role, but it did find a niche in the infantry support role.

This is most clearly expressed in the final Pz.Kpfw.III variant to enter service – the Ausf.N, of which 700 were manufactured or converted.

The Panzer III N entered service in June 1942 and production continued until August 1943.

Key characteristics of the Ausf.N were its basis on the Ausf.J or M chassis, and the fitting of a short-barreled 7.5cm KwK37 L/24 gun.

The Panzer III N was used in the close-support role in Tiger battalions or Panzergrenadier divisions.
