panzer 3 concept by ~Akuma1x does one of the greatest battlefield tanks justice with all the incredible details. Very skilled drawing for a 3D artist, check out his gallery for a talented mix of quality art. ( Suggested by Nesi and Featured by Aeires )

Really nice detailed pic :).

Just one thing: it's a 50mm gun here not a 75mm. Panzer 3 with the 75mm gun had a short barrel (a L/24). Here it's a high velocity 50mm gun (L/64).

Did you know that there's an anime  where school girls fight in a tank competition?

Amazing art, great work! I have to say though i believe the panzer 3 was never fitted with a long barrelled 75mm gun though there was a model fitted with the short barrelled kwk37 like the early panzer IVs. I believe the gun you have depicted is the 50mm Kwk39/L60, a far superior anti tank weapon to the kwk37.

For the Panzer IV vs M1 Sherman arguement: The Panzer IV was far superrior for many reasons, one of them is simply becuase it didnt use deasel so it didnt have the nasty habbit of birsting into flames after being hit for the first time, and it was also faster, and had better gun and armor, the reason the allies won WW2, (both east and west) was NUMBERS people, WW2 was won in the factory, not the battlefield, remember that.

Stalin said that this was a war of motors.  Who had the most motors would win.  The problem the Germans gave themselves was not recovering their vehicles for repair/spare parts.  That was where the Sherman had the advantage:  It was quick to produce; easy to maintain; and could be recovered for repairs or stripped for parts.  However, your line of thinking in regard to the diesel engine is backwards.  Petrol engines blew up quickly when hit.  The Germans moved to diesels because they could move the bigger tanks, like the Panther, Tiger, and so forth easier because a petrol engine of the same capacity of power would be too big to fit into the tank.  The Russians learned this when they built the T-34.

your right on most of that statement but for one little detail: your getting your fuels mixed up, the M4 Sherman ran on Gasoline, which is easily set on fire, hence the Sherman's assorted combustion and fire related nicknames, whereas most German tanks ran on Diesel, which is extremely difficult to set on fire by accident.

Woops, must have mixed the components. Anyway, you get understood the arguement.

ah the panzer. Like the tank of the german army. But there no match for the sherman tanks and the crews that man them.

the m1 sherman was far behind the panzer 3 in evrything, the panzer 3 was superior to the m1 sherman, but the germans just didn't have enough of them, if the german's had stuck white the panzer 3 innsted of the tiger and the oanther they could win the war

But in terms of number and enginutiy and the setting of the western front the panzer could not be able to match the serman at all.

the panzer series where the best tank's off the war, hell, one of the types, the upgraded panzer 3 white side skirts and a larger gun was even better than the russian T-34, their only problem was their numbers, after the allies begun bombing german factories the german army could just not make the numbers they needed to win the war, instead they tried new tank's like the panzer 6( the tiger) and the panther, in numbers the US win only after the USSR, but the in technology ang enginutiy the germans win BIG TIME

In makeing the tanks yes. But in the feald of battle and the creative ways of stoping tanks. The US wins that single handlly.

in the creative way to stop a tank?
the only thing the M1 Sherman had as armament was a litle 50 mm short barel gun, and the armor was thin as hell, the smallest AT gun the german had could easy take a sherman out, it maybe fast and manuvrebol but in a head on fight it would lose badly,and it had a tendency to light on fire whery easy,

its a god tank, but only if you have at least the double amount of tank's then the enemy have, the best one of the sherman series must be the M1 Sherman firefly, but that was an English version white a longer 85 mm

And actually the KwK 37 is the Panzer IV's low velocity gun unsuitable for tank combat plus it's very short shorter than the 75mm gun of the Sherman.
