Did you know? The Panzer III Ausf.D found its purpose in the Panzerbefehlswagen, or tank command vehicle, setup. This adaptation brought about several alterations, notably paring down the armament to a solitary machine gun situated within the turret. A faux primary cannon was employed to obscure its true function as a command vehicle, while the turret was immobilized.

Supplementary radio apparatus was incorporated, with a conspicuous addition being the substantial antenna affixed to the turret’s rear.
