PIIIF/G and H turret

Recommended Posts

Bast, I will double check when I get home, but this is what I had found earlier.

According to Encyclopedia of German Tanks of World War Two, front turret in the H and G was 30 @ 13, and 30@15, and the gun manlet itself was 37@0-45.

Will double check when I get home, but seems close to yours except for the rounded parts, which is the manlet. However, what is 2 mm among Grogs?

That the changes from G to H were all to do with the hull; bolted armour, new stronger torsion bars, new transmission, new drive and idlier wheels etc.

The turret for the 5cm KwK L/42 was actually the one designed for the H, therefore the F and G turret mounting the short 5cm gun should be identical.
