Germany-PzIV schmalturm.png

The Pz.Kpfw. IV Schmalturm is a German tier 6 premium medium tank.

In November 1944 the Krupp company presented several avant-projects aimed to upgrade armament of tanks and tank destroyers in service. Among them there was a project of mounting a Panther's Schmalturm (narrow turret) on the Pz IV Ausf. J. The project was canceled due to phasing out the Pz IV production.

Well known for its "Vaderturm", and ingame as the "TIE fighter" for its side skirts (which it is important to note, do NOT have a hitboxes), if you had played the Pz.Kpfw. IV prior patch 8.0 you know what to expect, an excellent sniper tank with decent mobility and excellent turret armor, the Panzer 4 Schmalturm excels at the role of supporting an assault from far distances and even more with the enhanced reload time, you can keep enemies occupied while your team moves forward and still keep up the pace of the battle.

While the penetration is still superb, the alpha damage is still lacking for its tier, so experienced tankers will try to shorten the distance gap to get to you, as fighting close range is the bane of this tank with overall weak hull armor and slow turret rotation speed against you. You should seek at all times only to expose your strong turret to defeat your enemies, make no mistake, the L/70 75mm gun is still a serious threat against any opponent, with its excellent accuracy and penetration.

Historical Info

Version with Schmalturm turret was to be developed from Pz IV H model
Given the growing resistance of allied tanks to German anti-tank guns, plans were developed to categorically up-gun the entire range of German tanks toward the end of World War II. One possible answer was affixing the Schmalturm of the Panther Ausf. F to the Panzerkampfwagen IV Ausf. J chassis. No prototype was ever built so only the drawing give an indication of what the conversion would look like. Unfortunately, like so many other late-war German projects, this conversion was impractical. The chassis of the Panzerkampfwagen IV was severely overloaded by the schmalturm. Furhtermore, it is doubtful the turret ring of the Panzer IV would have been able to accommodate the turret unless the overhang was widened (which was suggested in one schematic). However this would have further overloaded an already burdened chassis.
