M3 Lee

The M3 first saw action against Rommel's forces in North Africa, in 1942. It battled on every front, fighting for the armies of United States, United Kingdom and the Soviet Union, eventually replaced by the superior M4 Sherman tank series. The M3 had an unusual turret design with the main weapon -a 75 mm gun- in an off center mounting in the hull. A small cupola on top held a machine gun, giving the effect of one turret on top of another. Unhappy with the tall profile, The British, had their own turret fitted-this one lower in profile with a bustle at the back for the radio set. Tanks manufactured with the new turret received the name Grant while the original M3s were called Lee.

Krupp Sd.Kfz.161 Panzer IV G

Over 6,000 examples of Panzerkampfwagen IV tanks were produced between 1943 and 1945. Armed with a short-barrel 75mm gun and driven by a 250-horsepower engine, the Panzer IV quickly became the workhorse of Panzer Divisions. After the appearance of the Russian T-34-with its dominant guns and heavier, sloped armor-the Panzer needed design modifications such as thick side and turret skirts, a new gun (the KwK 40 75mm L/48) and a larger turret. With these upgrades, the Panzer IV proved equal to the Soviet T-34 and was also effective against British tanks and American M-4 Sherman Medium Tanks.
