Skirts for MK IV's...

Recommended Posts

I did a little research and found this interesting fact: mesh skirts weren't introduced until Sept. 1944. Prior to that the skirts were standard soft plate steel. The mesh skirts could be repositioned to accommodate the Ostketten ( wider tracks used on the Eastern Front in muddy conditions ). This info comes from Osprey New Vanguard # 39 Panzerkampfwagen IV Ausf. G, H and J 1942-45 by Hilary Doyle & Tom Jentz.

I just thought I'd post this to help those of you who want to be as authentic as possible when playing CMBO. This is a great little book.
