Pz Kpfw III Ausf B

The Pz Kpfw III Ausf B was produced in 1937 and armed with a 3.7cm KwK L46.5 gun, two coaxial mounted 7.92mm MG34 and a third 7.92mm MG34 in the hull. It was powered by a Maybach HL108TR gasoline engine and crewed by five men. The Ausf B was developed with 8 road wheels instead of the 5 on the Ausf A split into 4 pairs with leaf spring suspension supporting each pair of wheels. In addition a 3rd return roller was added giving the Ausf B a very different look from the Ausf A. 15 were produced.
