It has all the
technical details,14 1/35 scale 4-view plans, chassis plans for 1943
and 1944 production with their different bump stop arrangements and
armour body plans for Ausfs C and D.
As well as these, there are 1/20 scale detail drawings for the four types of track link, the several types of MG34 and 42 mounting and their different shields, the 8-tonne pioneer bridges, both types of short 7.5 cm gun with their mounts, the 3.7 cm “doorknocker” fitted to platoon leaders’ vehicles, flamethrower barrels, and the triple MG151 mount of the 251/21, and many smaller details.
The detailed text covers all the subtypes and gives production figures, unit organisations, and experience reports, and there are many good, clear photographs.
Another essential reference from the Panzer Tracts team.
