New book, 87 pages, No.4-3. Starting at the end, this new history includes 26 pages of 1:35, 1:20 and 1:10 scale CAD drawings of the Pz.Kpfw.IV Ausf.H May43 (Vomag), Pz.Kpfw.IV Ausf.H Oct43 (Krupp), Pz.Kpfw.IV Ausf.J Mar44 (NiWerk), Befehlspanzer IV Ausf.J Sep44, Beobachtungspanzer IV Jan45 and Pz.Kpfw.IV Ausf.J Apr45. Emphasis has been placed on the features of each sub variant as introduced by the three Assembly firms. This coverage has been made possible by over 50 years of research in private and public archives. As usual Panzer Tracts readers get the benefit of hundreds of hours that were spent precisely measuring surviving Pz.Kpfw.IV and their components to create new multi-view drawings. An outstanding discovery was a surviving Drathgeflechtschuerzen this revealed new details that are documented for the very first time and will require updating of existing model kits. Chassis number analysis has led to an updated production history. In accordance with Panzer Tracts high standards, the history and data are based solely on primary sources. 90 large clear photos were specifically chosen to illustrate the modifications highlighted in this book.
