Response to Re: Pease recheck

Sorry, this is getting way of topic. PzKpfw IV was concieved as a "support tank". To say it wasn't an "infantry support tank" is a contradiction. The original concept, which the choice of the short barrel, low velocity gun was based on, called for the "breakthrough" to be achieved by the infantry, supported by the IV, then exploited by the III supported by all other elements.
Also note that the original panzertruppen request for the PzKpfw III called for the high velocity 50mm gun not the 37mm. The 37mm was a decision of Waffenampt, against the wishes of Panzertruppen commanders including Guderian.
Anyway, we're getting too far off topic, thanks for the lively discussion!

Gene
