Panzer III Ausf. J/L/M Paperback / softback
Part of the Photosniper series
Highly detailed publication covering the extensively used World War II German medium tank, Panzer III AUSF.
J/L/M, now revised and expanded. The Panzer III was intended as the primary battle tank of the German forces.
It outclassed most of the tanks of the time, in that it had a three man turret, which greatly improved effectiveness in battle.
However, when it initially met the KV and T-34 tank designs it proved to be inferior in armour and gun power.
To meet the growing need to counter these tanks, the Panzer III was upgunned with a longer, more powerful 50-millimetre (1.97 in) cannon and received more armour. Containing dozens of archive black and white and colour photos, including close-up and walkaround shots and colour artwork profiles, this is an ideal reference for both the enthusiast and modeller, with masking foil included. About the SeriesPhotosniper is a classic series of highly illustrated photo books on the best machines of war, creating, with numerous images, a close-up, walk-around view for each aircraft or vehicle.
With emphasis on the key features of each machine, including their variations, artwork, markings, insignia and modifications, customising and creating a model could not be easier.
