  • Photo Error in Jan 2008 Issue

    Did anyone else catch the photo error in this issue? We are embarrassed as hell that it got through our editing staff, but alas we are not perfect.

    See what you think;

    Auf F-2? Not in France at that time. Didn't see it, don't buy it regularly. Most all others of the Weider group I buy each issue, just not ACG

      Yep, Panzer IV with long barrel (probably a F2 model as HP points out). Looks like Russia too

        I agree with Boonierat on both counts!

          agree, not
          France. Much to flat. Eastern Front.

            Long barrel Mk IV wasn't used in France.

                The battle for France and the Low Contries was longer then 6 weeks?

                May 10, 1940 - June 25, 1940 is 6 weeks and 4 days

                  There wasn't really an actual official F2 model either.

                    That depends. Confusingly, there may be no definitive physical differences between Ausf.F2 and Ausf.G, and the improvements made to later vehicles (e.g., changes in vision ports and the double-baffle muzzle brake) may have simply occurred as supplies of old parts were used up. The Ausf.F2 designation was applied retroactively, and one would have to know the tank's serial number to know the correct designation. Ausf.F2 tanks were originally part of the seventh Begleitwagen series (7/BW), as were Ausf.F1, but Ausf.G began the 8/BW series. Ausf.F2 was then also retroactively renamed 8/BW.

                      The PzKpfw IV Ausf did not carry the 1x75mm KwK L/43 gun until 1942. The 1940 version was the 1x75mm KwK L/24, short barrel, until the end of 1941. I think I have also seen that photo before, many years ago, and it was captioned something about 'Tank battle on the steps of Russia'
