During the French campaign, the PZIIIE series was the main battle tank for the panzer divisions. It was armed with a 37mm cannon and had decent armor for that time. The 37mm gun could destroy most of the early war allied tanks, but the 37L46 had difficulty taking out the heavy allied tanks as the British Matilda. About 600 of this series were produced and served till the middle of 1942.


The PZIIIE is one of the first tanks that makes a diference in the battlefield. It has good soft and hard atack values from 1939 to late 1941.
