Flames of War: German Panzer IV Platoon (Mid War-Afrika Korps)
The Panzer IV equips one company in each tank battalion. Its role is to provide heavy fire support for the lighter Panzer III tanks of the other companies. Initially, the companies had two platoons of short-barrelled Panzer IV tanks as artillery support. As the Battle of Gazala progressed, long-barrelled versions arrived, replacing the artillery support role with a heavy anti-tank capability.
