The first tanks in the German army appeared at the end of World War I - these were the A7V machines. After the signing of the Treaty of Versailles, the German armed forces were forbidden to develop armored weapons, but the German side did not honor these restrictions and secretly developed armored weapons. However, after Adolf Hitler came to power in 1933, this development became fully official, and in 1935 the 1st Armored Division was formed. In the period 1935-1939, further divisions were formed, and their main equipment was the Pz.Kpfw cars: I, II, III and IV. A single armored division at that time was composed of a tank brigade divided into two armored regiments, a motorized infantry brigade and support units, among others: reconnaissance, artillery, anti-aircraft and sappers. It consisted of about 300 tanks in full time. It is also worth adding that the German armored forces (German: Panzerwaffe) were trained and prepared to implement the doctrine of lightning war, and not - as in many armies of the time - to support infantry activities. Therefore, emphasis was put in training "pancerniakˇw" on the interchangeability of functions, independence in decision-making by officers and non-commissioned officers and the best technical mastery of the tanks owned. All this resulted in great successes of German armored weapons in Poland in 1939, but especially in Western Europe in 1940. Also in the course of the fighting in North Africa - especially in the period 1941-1942 - the German armored forces turned out to be a very difficult opponent. Before the invasion of the USSR, the number of German armored divisions almost doubled, but the number of tanks in these units decreased to about 150-200 vehicles. Also in the course of the fighting on the Eastern Front - especially in 1941-1942 - the German armored forces were superior in training and organization to their Soviet opponent. However, contact with such vehicles as the T-34 or KW-1 forced the introduction of the Pz.Kpfw V and VI tanks to the line in 1942 and 1943. Growing losses on the Eastern Front, as well as lost battles - at Stalingrad or Kursk - made the German Panzerwaffe weaken. Its structure included heavy tank battalions (with 3 tank companies), and in 1943, armored grenadier divisions were established. There was also an increasingly clear advantage of the Soviet side, and from 1944 - the need to simultaneously fight the Soviet troops in the east and the Allies in the west. It is also assumed that it was then (in the years 1944-1945) that the training of the German armored forces was weaker than in the previous period and did not constitute such a significant advantage on the German side than before. The last large-scale operations of the German Panzerwaffe were the offensives in the Ardennes (1944-1945) and in Hungary (1945).

The Pz.Kpfw V (SD.Kfz 171) Panther is a German medium tank, considered to be one of the best tanks of the Second World War. This vehicle was a response to the Soviet T-34. The first production versions appeared as early as 1942, but the Panthers appeared for the first time on the front lines in the summer of 1943, in the Battle of Kursk. Due to the very high failure rate and numerous "childhood" problems of the vehicle, 150 out of 204 used vehicles were lost. Interestingly, however, only a few of these 150 cars were lost as a result of the Soviet shelling. After eliminating these shortcomings, the Panther became famous as an extremely effective tank. It owed it to the well-shaped frontal armor and the excellent anti-tank gun. KwK 42 / L70 cal 75mm. The basic version of the T34 / 76 did not stand a chance with the Panther. Only the advent of the T34 / 85 and IS-2 tanks changed this state of affairs. On the other hand, the Allied Sherman tanks could compete with the Panther only after being armed with a 17-pound gun (Sherman Firefly). Nevertheless, it should not be forgotten that the Achilles' heel of this successful design was the weak side armor and the high technical complexity of the entire structure, and thus the high production time. Throughout the war, around 6,000 Panther vehicles of all versions (Ausf. D, A, G) were produced. The first mass-produced version was the "D" version, with 80mm thick frontal armor and a Maybach 230 P30 engine with 700HP. From the second half of 1943, tanks of this version had armored aprons. The Panther Ausf entered production in September 1943. A. It had a spherical mount for the MG-34 rifle in the fuselage. It was produced until March 1944. The "G" version was the most produced version. Over 3,700 tanks of this model were built. It was produced from March 1944 to January 1945. It mainly increased the angle of the frontal armor and made it thicker. The gun mantlet has also been modified. The Jagdpanther tank destroyer (Sd.Kfz 179) was also built on the Panther's chassis. When assessing the Pz.Kpfw V, you should remember not only about the great frontal armor or the gun, but also pay attention to the disadvantages of the weapon - large overall dimensions, delicate suspension, armor of increasingly poor quality caused by a lack of molybdenum or weak side armor. Technical data: length (with a barrel): 8.66m, width: 3.42m, height: 2.99m, engine power: 700KM, range (on the road): 200km, maximum speed (on the road): 46km / h, weapons : 1 cannon. 75mm KwK 42 / L70, 2 7.92mm MG-34 machine guns.

The Bergepanzer Panther or Bergepanther (Sd.Kfz 179) was a German technical support and evacuation tank from the Second World War. The first prototypes were built in 1944, and serial production started in the same year, leading to the creation of about 300 vehicles of this type. The vehicle was powered by an engine Maybach HL230 P30 with 700 hp. The tank was armed with a single 7.92 mm MG34 machine gun and - in some examples - a 20 mm cannon.

Due to the introduction of the Pz.Kpfw V and Pz.Kpfw VI vehicles to the line, the Wehrmacht command faced the problem of evacuating damaged vehicles of this type from the battlefield. For a relatively long time, this problem was solved by sending to such vehicles lighter technical support vehicles (eg Sd.Kfz 7 or 9), but 2-3 vehicles per one tank. In 1944, however, it was decided to create an evacuation vehicle based on the chassis of the Pz.Kpfw V tank in A and G versions. The reconstruction consisted in removing the turret and replacing it with a crane. A much more durable drive train was also installed. Some cars of this type were also equipped with a winch with a lifting capacity of up to 40 tons. For the production of carts Bergepanther was responsible for the MAN, Henschel, Daimler-Benz and Demag plants.

Kfz.4 (full name: Kfz. 4 Truppenluftschutzkraftwagen) is a German, light, military off-road vehicle from the interwar period and World War II. The car entered service in 1938. The drive - most often - was provided by a single 4-cylinder St÷ewer engine with a capacity of 2 liters and 50 HP. The car was about 3.9 meters long with a wheelbase of 2.4 meters. The armament consisted of two coupled MG34 machine guns. The Kfz.4 was designed and produced by St÷ewer, but later BMW and Hanomag also started licensing production. The design of the vehicle was largely based on the Kfz.1 and Kfz.3 cars. For example, all three vehicles had an almost identical body. The Kfz.4 car was designed to provide direct short and very short anti-aircraft air defense to German motorized and mechanized units. Its armament was mounted on a rotating tow truck (German Zwilingslafette 36). During the service, the Kfz.4 proved to be too heavy, with insufficient power-to-weight ratio, very complicated to operate and causing problems in the field.
