The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses.

Panzerkampfwagen III (PzKw III)
Initial Production 1937 (Daimler Benz)
Combat Weight 20 tons
The PzKw III was produced in more than 15 different variations. It would be sufficient to say that this is a PzKw III chassis and turret however the gun mount are not consistent with 3.7cm conigurations of this vehicle. It is more than likely that this is a 5cm H model or later. The Panzer III’s crew consisted of 5 men and was armed with 3.7cm or 5cm main guns and two or three 7.92mm coaxial and bow mounted MG 34 machine guns. Road speeds were between 35 and 40 mph.
