The German Panzer Tank Versions 1 to 5

Updated on July 10, 2015

Panzerkampfwagenv - Armoured Fighting Vehicle

The Panzer Tank was first produced in Germany in 1934 and the first produced model was the Panzer I, full name being Panzerkampfwagen, which translates as armoured fighting vehicle. When reviewing the capabilities of any tank there are two basic principles for consideration.

1. How much damage can its weapons produce?

2. How much protection does it provide?

The Panzer I was a light tank originally produced for training and although looking formidable it was lacking in both fire power and protection. Two machine guns and thin armour made this a poor combat tank. However subsequent versions of the Panzer improved upon armament and armour and the Panzer progressed from the Mark 1 to the Mark 5

1/35 Flakpanzer V "Coelian" w/Panzer Riders
1/35 Flakpanzer V "Coelian" w/Panzer Riders

The Panther was a hugely successful tank within the ranks of the German military during WWII. A number of variants based on the Panther were built, including the Bergepanther recovery vehicle. However, there are other lesser-known variants that didn’t enter full-series production, one of which was the Flakpanzer V. Rheinmetall-Borsig began developing this antiaircraft vehicle in December 1943. Its main armament was twin 3.7cm FlaK 43 cannons mounted in an armored turret with a full 360� traverse. One other feature of the turret was that it permitted the guns to be elevated almost vertically when taking on marauding enemy aircraft. The official designation of the vehicle was Flakpanzer 341, but it was commonly referred to as the Flakpanzer V “Coelian”. Dragon has released a 1/35 scale kit of “Coelian” before, but now it has become more attractive than ever! As an Orange Box item, the kit has been upgraded. The kit is equipped with a new set of Panther Magic Tracks, but most useful of all perhaps is the inclusion of a set of figures. The 1/35 figure set is a set of four German tank riders. They are totally suited to the vehicle, for they are late-war figures designed specially to fit on a Panther engine deck. With the bundled figures, this Flakpanzer V “Coelian” is an extremely attractive proposition that comes at a very reasonable price.

Panzer I and II: Light Tanks (2005)

It is one of the enduring myths of the Second World War, that the German 'Blitzkrieg' victories of the early years of the conflict were achieved by their employment of a numerically and technologically superior tank force. In reality, the defeat of Poland and France, Yugoslavia and Greece and the remarkable victories in the opening stages of the Russian campaign and in North Africa, were wrought by German tank divisions equipped, in the main, with light tanks.

War Archive - Panzer I & Ii

The Panzer I weighed less than six tons, and was armed with two machine guns and armor barely able to withstand the impact of such weapons itself. It was with these light-weight workhorses, rather than their heavier and more glamorous stablemates, that the Blitzkrieg legend was forged.

Hitler's Panzers by Dennis Showalter - The Lightning Attacks that Revolutionized Warfare

A leading World War II historian provocatively analyzes Germany’s armored forces, the most influential branch of the Wehrmacht on modern warfare. He exposes the roots of the panzers, pointing out that Heinz Guderian was only one of a number of highly innovative commanders who created the panzers and then led them into the highly successful opening battles of the war. The early panzer victories made Hitler a passionate panzer advocate, and that in turn affected the status of the armored forces within the Wehrmacht and their loyalties to Hitler and the Nazi regime in general. Showalter has, as usual, researched thoroughly and written well but furnishes less background than non-scholarly readers will want. --Roland Green

Hitler's Panzers: The Lightning Attacks that Revolutionized Warfare
Hitler's Panzers: The Lightning Attacks that Revolutionized Warfare

A fascinating account of Nazi Germany's armored forces by the author of Patton and Rommel.

Determined to secure a quick, decisive victory on the World War II battlefields, Adolf Hitler adopted an attack plan that combined tools with technique- the formidable Panzer divisions. Self-contained armored units able to operate independently, the Panzers became the German army's fighting core as well as its moral focus, establishing an entirely new military doctrine.

In Hitler's Panzers renowned World War II scholar Dennis Showalter presents a comprehensive and unbiased study of Nazi Germany's armored forces. By delving deeply into a detailed history of the theory, strategy, myths, and realities of Germany's technologically innovative approach to warfare, Showalter provides a look at the military lessons of the past, and a speculation on how the Panzer ethos may be implemented in the future of international conflict.

 

Panzers in the Sand by Bernd Hartmann - The History of Panzer Regiment 5, 1935-1941

In September 1939, the tanks of Panzer-Regiment 5 swept into Poland, a devastating part of the German blitzkrieg that opened World War II with a terrifying display of military force. The following spring, the regiment rumbled across France, again showing the destructive power of the panzer. But the unit's greatest fame would come in the North African desert, where Panzer-Regiment 5 joined Erwin Rommel's vaunted Afrika Korps as it battled the British back and forth beneath the scorching sun of Libya and Egypt.

      Panzer tanks were badass. Still I would pick T-34. It was easy to manufactured, quantity is a quality ;). Plus T 34 was really a good tank. In fact, Soviet tanks weren't really that behind German tanks. Allies had the worst, Sherman wasn't all that :).
