Panzer IV-GH tank

German
Experimental Panzerkampfwagen IV
(Medium Tank)
Initial Production 1945
Combat Weight 26 tons

The Germans equipped this vehicle with an experimental hydraulic Transmission. It is very similar to the Panzerkampfwagen IV H, but the side plates of the chassis are extended to accommodate the hydraulic transmission. In anticipation of the last ditch defense of the factory where this tank was manufactured, the Germans stationed this tank on the road leading to the factory. However, the tank saw no combat before a Technical intelligence Team of the U.S. Army recovered it in 1945.
