The Panzer IV (Panzerkampfwagen or PzKpfw IV), developed in the late 1930s, remained in continuous production throughout the Second World War, with about 9,000 built. Versions F1/G/H were produced between 1943 and 1945. It was also used as the base for many other fighting vehicles including the Jagdpanzer IV tank destroyer, the StuG IV assault gun (cat no.2482) and other self-propelled weapons.
Upgrades and modifications such as increasing the weight of its armour or the power of its weapons were made to counter new threats and tended to extend its service life.
The Panzer IV was partially succeeded by the Panther medium tank (cat no.2466), introduced to counter the Russian T-34 (cat no.2476); but it continued as a significant component of German armoured formations to the end of the war and, in different hands, beyond. Panzer IVs were used by the Syrian army as late as 1967 during the 'Six Day War'
