Panzer III Bits

The HO scale Roco Panzer III is a versitile kit.

This one is the artillery observation vehicle version.

They removed the bow machine gun and the main cannon and replaced them with radio gear.

The turret has a dummy gun and in the center there is a machine gun.

By taking away the main gun and bow machine gun the vehicle crew will concentrate on artillery observation and not try to act like a real tank. By being in a tank chassis they can keep up with the armored units they support. This was a good use for an obsolete tank.
