TAKOM 8002 1/35 Pz.Kpfw.III Ausf.M mit schürzen Plastic Model Kit

Sd.Kfz 141 Pz.Kpf.W. III Ausf.M

In February 1934, following the specifications ordered by Hans Guderian, the Armaments Department ordered the development of a new tank, code-named “Zugführerwagen” or “Z.W.” It was intended as the main battle tank of the German Panzer divisions, capable of engaging and destroying opposing tank forces. It was to feature a maximum weight of 24,000 kg (53,000 lbs.) and a top speed of 35 km/h (22 mph). Four companies responded with designs for the contract: Daimler-Benz, Krupp, MAN, and Rheinmetall. After testing each proposal, the Daimler-Benz design was selected for production in August 1935.

The basic design layout of the Panzer III was the same as the previous Panzer I and II, with the gearbox at the front and the engine at the rear of the hull. The turret was an enlarged version of the one used on the Panzer II, able to house three of the five-man crew (commander, gunner and loader). This new arrangement dramatically improved the fighting power of the tank by increasing its rate of fire.

Powered by the Maybach HL120TRM engine, the Pz. III Ausf M was nearly identical to the previous Ausf L, with the same 125px KwK39 L/60 gun and extra 20mm spaced armour on the mantlet and superstructure front, but had three 90 mm (3.54 in) NbK smoke dischargers mounted on both sides of the turret and 5mm thick steel skirts surrounding the turret and sides of the hull to help protect against higher caliber weapons. It also featured fording equipment, which allowed it to wade through up to five feet of water. This was achieved by providing watertight covers for every opening below the turret, including the engine air intakes. Air was provided via the turret while the tank was fording.

This variant was used to replaced front line losses, and took part in the battle of Kursk and the defense of Sicily, although by then its 125px gun was virtually ineffective in tank-vs-tank fighting. A total of 1000 units were ordered, but only 250 were produced until February 1943. The rest were either converted to Ausf.Ns, StuG III’s, Flammpanzer IIIs, or simply dismantled.

If your order is coming from more than one location: We suggest you order with Standard Shipping rather than Express (this is due in part to transportation time between stores to get your order combined and sent from 1 location which will delay your "express" postage option).

What are pre-orders?
Pre-orders are as the name suggests, placing an advanced pre-release order on an item. This means that the order you are placing is for the future release of a product that has yet to be released, or re-stocked.

How much are pre-orders?
Pre-order prices are defined at the time based off what we initially received from the manufacturer. This means that when we receive the product (to send to you), manufacturing costs, taxes, and even economic shifts in the country of the manufacturer, could affect the final price when we receive it in store. So, we suggest you use the price shown only as a point of reference, as it may not be derivative of the final price when it is received and ready to be sent to you.

How long do I have to wait for my pre-order?
The wait time depends on the release date of the pre-order product, and the time you placed your order. Pre-order release times also vary per product, per manufacturer, transportation and many other factors. If a release date is given from the manufacturer, please note that this is still subjective due to circumstances out of our control, and this isn’t indicative of our in-store stock date this could be a day or two after the release date.

Why am I being charged for my pre-order, even though the product isnt released yet?
This is pre-payment for an item's payment and delivery costs that isn’t released yet (pre-order) to ensure as soon as it arrives your order can be fulfilled and sent out to you a.s.a.p. Not all orders will be charged shipping depending on size, and total order amount (see our website for current shipping to find out more and our shipping policy for more information).
