Panzer III became obsolete against enemy tanks.
It was also the most widely exported tank in German service, with around 300 sold to partners such as Finland,
Spain and Bulgaria. The French and Spanish also sold dozens to Syria after the war and it was used in combat in
the Six-Day War.
The Panzer IV Ausf. F was first produced in April 1941. Some 464 Ausf. F1s were produced between April 1941
and March 1942 of which 25 were converted to F2, 175 F2s were produced from March 1942- July 1942.
The difference between the F1 and F2 was that the F2 was fitted with a new, longer, KwK 40 L/43 anti-tank gun
