As part of our 15mm Barbarossa Project, we needed some 15mm scale Panzer IIIG's - four, in fact. The Panzer III usually doesn't get much respect from wargamers, who much prefer the later Panthers and Tigers. In the early-war period, however, the Panzer III is a formidable fighting vehicle - and in our Barbarosa scenario, it's the primary German tank.

Pleas were sent to the various manufacturers, and Battlefront was kind enough to respond (with five models).
