Pz Kpfw IV Ausf D

Armed with a short barrel 7.5cm KwK/37 L/24 the Ausf D had some improvements over earlier versions of the Pz Kpfw IV including the stepped hull front and the re-introduced hull machine gun. The Ausf D had additional armour on the side and rear and an external mantlet for the main gun. Only 229 Ausf D were produced with a few used as the chassis for bridging tanks and ammunition tanks for the Karl mortars. Please note that the Pz Kpfw IV kits have been acknowledged by IBG models as 1/76 scale.
