Panzer Tracts No.16-1 � Bergepanther Ausf.D, A, G.

Available Now

This was one of the most exciting projects for the Panzer Tracts team with significant new discoveries. The history of the Bergepanther has been difficult to unravel: firstly, there was a lack of clarity in the original German documentation, secondly, the Allies were only interested in Bergepanther equipped with the 40t winch and associated spade. Now, Panzer Tracts can reveal a much more complete story of the Bergepanther which was essential to the functioning of Panther and Tiger units. Besides the Ausf.A & G we found three different versions converted from the turretless Pz.Kpfw.Panther chassis! Two were new vehicles while the final one was rebuilt from large numbers of Panther Ausf.D in a previously undocumented factory. Between 25% and 30% of all Bergepanther were turretless Panther chassis. Hundreds of hours were spent accurately measuring surviving Bergepanther and drawing at full-scale to create accurate as-built drawings. This 84-page Panzer Tracts is the ultimate primary source reference on the Bergepanther with over 21 pages 1:35 scale drawings and 82 clear, large-format photos, many which have never been seen before.

Panzer Tracts No.22-4 � Mittlerer Zugkraftwagen 8t (Sd.Kfz.7)

Available Now

The m.Zgkw.8t was one of the most important German military vehicles. Due to impressive size and the weapons they towed, they capture the imagination of all. Over time they faded into the background, though they were produced in ever increasing numbers. The Panzer Tracts team has produced a remarkable story supported by primary sources. Many m.Zgkw.8t have survived in public and private collections, including examples of all the chassis types. Several hundred hours were spent travelling and precisely measuring each, and over one thousand hours were expended to create accurate drawings. Our primary research also yielded numerous previously undocumented modifications. Including the history of the Trattore Semicingolato 8t which Breda was licensed to be built for the Italian army. This 88-page Panzer Tracts is the ultimate accurate primary source reference on the m Zgkw.8t (Sd.Kfz.7) with over 15 Pages of 1:35 scale drawings and 109 clear, large-format, photos most of which have never been published.

Panzer Tracts No. 6-3 - Schwere-Panzerkampfwagen Maus and E 100 development and production from 1942 to 1945

Available Now

Thanks to the School of Tank Technology, Krupp�s correspondence and meeting notes survived to provide us with a detailed insider view of the development of the Maus and the associated TIger-Maus (later renamed E 100) projects. Since the rigid procurement system had broken down, anyone attending the next project meeting could add novel ideas as requirements such as remotely controlled flamethrowers and a 2 cm anti-aircraft gun in the turret. Thanks to a private collector, the detailed large-scale component drawings created by Porsche and Krupp for the Maus survived and were used to create the new scale drawings of the Maus. Pure chance also preserved the drawings, notes, and photographs that made it possible for us to create new drawings of the E 100 with a turret designed by Krupp in 1944. In accordance with our high standards, the text and data are based solely on primary sources. 62 clean/rare photos and 67 scale drawings illustrate this 72 page book.

Panzer Tracts No. 18 - Panzerkampwagen 38 (t) Ausf.A to G and S Production, Modification, and Operational History from 1939 to 1942

Available Now

Now for the first time, we have compiled an accurate record of the features of each Pz.kpfw.38(t) Ausfuehrung. The correct pieces of the puzzle were found through a lot of hard work, research trips to measure and study the survivors, close attention to detail, and help from friends. Over one thousand hours were spent carefully measuring and drawing all the details of surviving Pz.Kpfw.38(t) chassis and turrets to create accurate four-view drawings of the Ausf.B, C, D, E, F, and S and six-view drawings of the Ausf.A and G. Extra efforts were also expended to draw details on the chassis and belly. As is our high standard, Panzer Tracts are based solely on the content of primary source documents. The real value of the Pz.Kpfw.38(t) can be learned by reading the experience reports written by unit commanders close to the time when the actions occurred. This 76 page book is illustrated with 50 drawings and 67 clean/rare photos with captions that correctly identify the external characteristics of each Ausfuehrung.

development and employment from 1927 to 1941

Now for the first time we present an accurate detailed history of the creation, production, and combat action of these famous tank destroyers. This first volume covers the initial attempts to create chassis specifically designed for self-propelled anti-tank guns (which didn�t get into mass production) and the resulting makeshift conversions on available armored chassis that had to be used in combat. Altogether 12 different projects are covered starting with the real Zwischenloesung, Krupp L.S.K., L.Tr.Sfl., 3.7 cm and 7.5 cm Sfl., Pz.Sfl.II, 8.8 cm Flak 18 Sfl., Pz.Sfl.IVa, Pz.Jaeg.I, 4.7 cm Pak(t) auf Pz.Kpfw.35R, and ending with the rare trial Pz.Sfl.Ia and Pz.Sfl.Ic. New as-built drawings - accurate to the same tight tolerances demanded of the original assembly firms - were created for both production series of the 4.7 cm Pak(t) (Sfl) auf Pz.Kpfw.I. This 72 page book is heavily illustrated with 17 scale drawings and 67 clear/rare large-format photos.

Panzer Tracts No. 5-2 - Panzerkampfwagen "Panther"Ausf.A

We spent hundreds of hours accurately measuring survivors and hundreds of days drawing at full-scale to create as-built drawings for the first time - accurate to the same tight tolerances demanded of the original assembly firms. Hundreds of research hours went into finding the numerous previously unnoticed modifications. Many of these newly discovered details would remain "hidden" if printed as 1/35th scale overview drawings. Therefore, we have selected the unique approach of using 1/10th scale drawings to illustrate the smallest details on components; while six-view (including right side and belly) 1/35th scale drawings are still used for the complete Panther. We also created "flat-plane" drawings of many components to aid modelers make accurate parts that are hard to replicate when only drawn at angle. This 68-page book is heavily illustrated with over 200 scale drawings and 38 clear/rare large-format photos.
