Panzer III Ausf.M is a production series of Panzer III with a kwk 39 5cm l/60 cannon that replaced the shorter kwk 38 5cm l/42. This improvement was so the Panzer III could knock out the Russian T-34, British Matilda and Crusader, M4A4 Shermans as well as M3 Lee medium tanks. Unlike the Panzer VI series, the Panzer III production chassis has torsion bar independent tread wheel suspension for smoother combat gun stabilization that would later be integrated in the Panzer V Panther chassis.
In the Anime...Edit
It was actually a Panzer III Ausf.H
