Tank description:

The Pz.Kpfw. IV Schmalturm is a German tier 6 premium medium tank.In November 1944, the Krupp company presented several avant-projects aimed at upgrading the armament of tanks and tank destroyers in service. Among them there was a project for mounting the Panther''s Schmalturm turret on the Pz IV Ausf. J. The project was not considered as it would overload the suspension and production of the Pz IV was being phased out.Combining the turret of the Panther and the hull of the Pz.Kpfw. IV Ausf. H, the Pz. IV S. has a more resilient turret than the other German medium tanks, excepting the VK 30.01 (P). It trades this for poorer hull armor and poor mobility. In earlier patches of World of Tanks when the game still had +/-3 matchmaking, the Tier V Pz. IV had the Schmalturm as its upgraded turret with the 7,5 cm Kw.K. 42 L/70 gun. When softer matchmaking rules were introduced, the Tier V tank lost the Schmalturm and the Pz. IV S. was reintroduced as a premium tank, now at Tier VI. The Pz. IV S. was removed from sale in the gift shop and the in game tech tree on the 8 June 2015 Removal of Premium Tanks From Shop as part of the WG retirement plan.
