Panzer IV F1 / F2 (GE042)

Panzer IV F1 / F2 (GE042) Panzer IV F1 / F2 (GE042)
includes one Panzer IV with F1 & F2 gun options & one Tank Commander.

The Panzer IV Ausf F series was the heaviest tank in the German arsenal at the start of the war with the Soviet Union. The major improvement of Panzer IV F series was the all-around increase in armour thickness in comparison with earlier models.

Panzer IV F1 / F2 (GE042)

Another improvement that was introduced in order to combat the superiority of KV-1 and T-34 encountered on the Eastern Front was a new gun; the long-barrelled 7.5cm KwK40 L/43. The up-gunned version of Panzer IV F was known as the Panzer IV F2 while those vehicles that retained the original short-barrelled 7.5cm KwK37 L/24 were designated the Panzer IV F1.

Protected Ammo
Many tanks are destroyed not by the enemy shell but by their own ammunition being hit by white-hot fragments of armour and exploding. The chances of this were minimised by providing a safe place for stowing ammunition within the vehicle such as an armoured compartment or inside a water-filled jacket.


If forced to bail out, crews of tanks with protected ammunition are far more confident when it comes to remounting their vehicle quickly.

Tanks with Protected Ammo re-roll all failed Motivation Tests to Remount Bailed Out vehicles in the Starting Step (see page 102 of the main rulebook).
