Panzer III vs. Panzer IV.

Post by stormbringer3 » Wed Jan 27, 2021 2:43 am

In Panzer Corps the Panzer III had an early advantage over the Panzer IV in tank vs. tank combat. However, in later years the Panzer IV was the better unit as it had a better upgrade path. Is it the same in this game? I tend to buy into one line and stick with it, that way I don't have to spend RPs to switch until I must.
Thanks for any opinions.

You can use the excellent Unit Navigator to check and compare the stats of the different PzIV models.

Yep, it's the same path in OoB
This reflects the actual development of both of these vehicles during the war

Unit Navigator is very useful for this

I still use some pz 3 just or my tanks formations will be looked ugly and boring till 1943. Pz 3 late models can deal pretty good vs infantry. And well, even you have many upgrades, you cant buy it frequency coz the update cost is too high compare to panzer corps.
