A brief history of German Panzer III Sd Kfz. 141 Rc Battle Tank


Panzer III was the common name of a medium Tank that was developed in the 1930s by Germany and was used extensively in World War II. The official German designation was Panzerkampfwagen III (abbreviated PzKpfw III) translating as "armoured battle vehicle".


It was intended to fight other armoured Fighting vehicle and serve alongside the infantry-supporting Panzer IV. However, as the Germans faced the formidableT-34, stronger anti-tank guns were needed. Since the Panzer IV had a bigger turret ring, the role was reversed.


The Panzer IV mounted the long barreled 7.5 cm KwK 40 gun and engaged in tank-to-tank battles. The Panzer III became obsolete in this role and for most purposes was supplanted by the Panzer IV. From 1942, the last version of Panzer III mounted the 7.5cm KwK 37L/24 better suited for infantry support. Production of the Panzer III ended in 1943. However, the Panzer III's capable chassis provided hulls for the Sturmgeschutz III until the end of the war.


Do you know what you are buying?

Basically, there are three different version of Heng Long tanks,

A). Standard tank with Nylon Tracks, Plastic Wheels and Plastic Gear Box (No Smoke generator + No Rx-18 circuit board). Keep in mind, this particular version is still using the older Rx-14 circuit board to keep the cost down. Therefore, you can pick one up easily at less than 60 pounds.

- After you bought the Standard Non Smoking version, and decided you want smoke unit. Unfortunately you CANNOT. That circuit board is not compatible with smoke Unit. It will ended up costing you another 20 pounds.

B). Standard tank with Nylon Tracks, Plastic Wheels and Plastic Gear Box (With Smoke generator + Rx-18 circuit board). This particular version has smoke generator factory installed smoking unit + Rx-18 circuit board. ( You can decide whether or not upgrade to PRO Metal upgrade version with this standard )

C). PRO VERSION with Rx18 circuit, smoking unit as standard equipment + Zinc alloy metal tracks, Zinc alloy sprockets, Ilder Wheels and Zinc alloy metal gear drivetrain. This version will cost you probably more than 120 pounds.
