Description[edit source]

The Panzer IV medium tank is the most numerous German tank of the war. Originally intended as an assault gun, it was converted to engage other tanks. Variant H has been fitted with a high-velocity 75mm main gun.

  • The vehicle gun is zeroed to 400m on default. Always remember to readjust your sights either right after spawning, or right before engaging your first opponent.
  • The Panzer IV is very vulnerable to enemy fire, but can penetrate very thick armor as well.
  • The Panzer IV has very slow acceleration, but a decent top speed. Turning of any kind brakes one of the tracks, causing a reduction in speed, needing to accelerate again.
  • As with all German tanks, it is highly recommended that you buy a camo for it, to help with ambushes.
  • The hull gunner has a very limited viewing angle. Turning your tank to the enemy will help him a lot.
  • The Panzer IV will almost never bounce shots as the armor isn't sloped.
  • The Panzer IV has a very powerful gun for a tier 2 medium tank.
  • Your turret front and mantlet have a very thin armor of only 50mm. Expect your enemy to shoot for this first, to break your breech and slow down reloads.
  • After the armor update, the side skirts now help with the deflection of AT rockets.
  • This tank has a very fast respawn timer, only 1:58s with APCR and HE shells. As long as you don't die too fast, you can constantly respawn immediately after death.
