Tristar Panzerkampfwagen IV Ausf D / Tauch

The Panzerkampfwagen IV came about at the request for a new design after the disappointment of the Neubau Fahrzeug. This vehicles was known as the ‘verbesserten Neubau Fahrzeug” until renamed Begleitwagen (escort tank) or B.W. The fourth model of the Escort Tank was named 4. Serie/B.W. and a contract for 200 was awarded to Krupp-Grusonwerk in July 1938. A further 48 were ordered for the SS and numbered 5. Serie/B.W. although they were the same as the 4. Serie. In any case, all manufactured Ausführung D were handed over to the Army.

For the planned invasion of England, several vehicles were tested with submersible equipment. While there were successes, they were not used against England and instead found their way to the Eastern Front. Several of the Panzerkampfwagen Ausf. D were converted to these Tauchpanzers and this kit represents this variant.

This is a hard to find Tristar version of the "Tauch". I have built the non Tauch Tristar IV and it is a great build.
