Panzer I - Panzerkampfwagen I Ausf B (German Tank)

lnietog
Panzerkampfwagen I was produced in two main very similar variants Ausf A (1934) and Ausf B (1935), which had different suspensions and engines. Ausf A was produced from July of 1934 to June of 1936 , while Ausf B was produced from August of 1935 to June of 1937. Both were produced by Henschel, MAN, Krupp-Gruson and Daimler-Benz. Ausf A proved to be underpowered and its very loud 57hp Krupp engine overheated and Ausf B with its 100hp Maybach engine was an improved version of Ausf A (See my other model). Both models had identical turret and superstructure but Ausf B was longer (additional roadwheel) and had new modified engine deck (new engine). Both variants were operated by two men crew - a driver and a commander/gunner. The main armament consisted of two 7.92mm MG13 Dreyse (medium) machine guns with rate of fire of 650 rounds per minute. #German_Tank #Light_Tank #Panzer #Panzer_1 #Panzer_1b #Panzer_ib #Panzerkampfwagen_I_Ausf_B #Tanque_de_Guerra #Tanque_ligero #tanques #War_Tank #WWII
