SU-1 76 mm self-propelled Assault Gun.At the end of 1930,in parallel with the work on self-propelled artillery mounts on the chassis of medium tanks T-24 and T-19,the chairman of NTK UMM Review of API 650 Annex E Design of large steel welded SUG III tanks bottom annular plate joints#0183; The Panzer III was a medium-class tank that,at the outbreak of WWII,was designed to be the primary platform of the all-conquering panzer divisions.However,with the advent of more heavily armored and up-gunned enemy tanks,the role of the Panzer III became secondary to that of the Panzer IV and production finally ceased in 1943.
