Miniart 1:35 - Pz.Kpfw. III Ausf. C - Plastic Figure Model Kit #35166

The Panzerkampfwagen III, widely known as the Panzer III, was a German medium tank produced by the Daimler-Benz AG in the 1930's. According to the Army Weapons Department plans, the Panzer III was aimed to serve as the main battle tank of the German Panzer divisions. It was meant to fight enemy tank forces with the support of the Panzer IV which was intended to neutralise anti-tank guns.

The Panzer III was able to reach speeds up to 40 km/h by road and 20 km/h off road. Its armament included one 37 mm KwK 36 L/45 cannon and two 7.92mm MG34 machine guns. Compared to its successors, the Ausf. G and Ausf. J, the Panzer III featured a relatively thin armour (15 mm). It had space for five crew members.

When the Soviet T-34 first appeared on the battlefield, the Germans saw the urgent need for a more powerful anti-tank gun. The decision was made to redesign the Panzer IV as it had more potential for further development. The Ausf. C soon became outdated and its production ended in 1943. The tank was deployed in several German campaigns of the early war period including the September Campaign in Poland, the Fall of France and Operation Barbarossa.

The kit contains 1047 plastic parts. It is the first plastic model of the Pz. Kpfw. III Ausf. C.
