F2 version of the Panzer IV, the main battle horse of the German Army. It appeared in the autumn of 1942 and was an improved version of the 7.5 cm KwK 37 L/24 short gun model F, which had proved ineffective against Russian armor. In contrast, the new F2 mounted for the first time a 7.5 cm KwK 40 L/43 long gun suitable for fighting the T-34s on the Eastern Front.
