Panzerkampfwagen IV (SdKfz 161) Ausf D

painting & photography by Kenneth Chipman

The first production version of the Pzkpfw IV came off the assembly line in 1936. The D model, built during 1937-1939 was once again fitted with a bow machine gun (which had been removed in the C model and replaced with a vision slit). After thorough trials of the vehicle in Poland, the Pzkpfw IVD (sd161) was “declared fit for service following its successful troop trials.”

Distinguishing Features: The pzkpfw IVD had eight double bogies, suspended in pairs from leaf springs; three return rollers; idler with narrow spokes; a tall cuploa at the rear of the turret; air grilles on the engine compartment decking; a short stubby gun; and a prominent driver’s compartment. The front MG was in placed in a ball mount and was manned by the wireless operator. A collapsible dipole aerial was mounted on the right side.
