Quick mission building question.

1943, August, Northern France - around Abbeville. Panzer with long barrelled main gun.

Of the available stock of Panzers in the game, which would be the most appropriate?

The Panzer III or IV.

Don't have any Ausf letters for you. Are our vehicles that descriptive?

Probably PzKpfw III Ausf J and later, PzKpfw IV F2 or G(H ?). J would be ok, too though this was the last version from late 1944 but there are few people who could tell from the air (if any).

Most were sent to the eastern front but any Pz IVs would definately be the Pz IV Ausf. G and H in late 43. The Ausf. J was not operational until july-august 1944
Some StuG units as well as various SPA units.

Most units were infantry divisions though. Some sicherung and policing units might have used old material as well. Things like the H39 and Pz II.

Thanks guys. There are quite a few available in the builder but the IVF2 looks the most likely of the longer-barelled types as there isn't a G or H.

If I'm looking to use Tigers I take it a Pz.VIB or E would fit the bill, from what I can see on Google?

I think I'm spending far too much time in this mission builder...

Tiger I is Panzer VIE
Tiger II is Panzer VIB

Panther is Panzer Va.

PanzerIII and Panzer IV F-2 will do fine on 1943 France maps.
