Tanks of 'Fury' #4: Panzer IV


The Panzer IV is the latest in our  Tanks of Fury series. The Germans used the sturdy and reliable vehicle on the European, Soviet and North African fronts. Its main armament was a 75mm gun and it also came with two 7.92mm machine guns on board. The tank weighed over 50,000 pounds and measured 23 ft. long by 8 ft. 10 in. tall. By the end of the war, half of the tanks still in service were Panzer IVs.

Fury, the World War II tank movie written and directed by David Ayer and starring Brad Pitt, arrives in theaters October 17. Set in the final days of the European conflict in April 1945, the film follows a Sherman tank and her crew on a mission behind enemy lines.
