About the original:
Around 200 Panzer IV F2 were produced and converted from F1 from March 1942 to July 1942. It had the 8 wheel suspension like its predecessors and was armed with the new long barreled 7,5cm KwK40 L/43 and two MG34. The crew consisted of 5 soldiers.
The Panzer IV Ausf.F2 is distuguishable from the new and unique single baffle muzzle brake and the L/43 gun instead of the longer L/48 seen in later versions.
The engine was the 265HP Maybach HL120TRM which allowed a maximum speed of 42km/h on street. The Panzer IV Ausf.F2 was 6.62m long, 2.88m wide and 2.68m high. It weighted 23 tons.
