Bef. Panzer III H is a German Tank unit.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Panzer III was developed in the 1930s, as part of the new German armored combat doctrine. Intended for fighting enemy tanks and infantry, the new tank entered production in 1936. Designed by Daimler-Benz, it was a traditional German tank, with heavily angled surfaces, a boxy superstructure, and a front-mounted gearbox. The first four variants, Ausf. A through D, were iterative developments that helped German engineers eliminate flaws in the design and iterate on technologies necessary for its production, with the first mature variant being the Ausf E, introduced in 1939. Initially adequate for fighting enemy tanks, Panzer III was replaced by its big brother, Panzer IV, in its tank-fighting rule as the limitations of its design became apparent.

The command tank variant of the Panzer III H still mounts the shorter, weaker 50mm gun of the H series, and is overall an older, inferior design of the Panzer III, predating the Ausf. J redesign.

Panzer Ersatz und Ausbildungs Abteilung 100 had a mixture of captured French tanks, Bef. Panzer III H and Infantry Platoons. Panzer Ersatz und Ausbildungs Abteilung 100 was a armored training battalion that supported 91. Luftlande.

116. Panzer commandeering their training tanks so Bef. Panzer III H serve as the command elements of the Panzer III units.

Elements of Funklenk-Abteilung 301 which had Bef. Panzer III H along with StuGs and Borgward IV served along side 2. Panzer.
