The Panzer IV Type H in Aces High II

If not the most popular GV, then certinaly the most used. Possibly the best non perked GV but some T-34 drivers would argue the point.

The panzer has a 75mm main gun, and 3 7.62mm mg's as secondary armament. The 75mm CAN kill anything in one shot, PROVIDED you hit it in the right spot. Weakest armor of all the tanks, but that hardly maters when you get up close (under 8 or so on the range marks), as all but the tiger and possibly the T-34/85 will usually be one-shot kills. Really the gun is just too weak at stand-off ranges, which seems to be the majority of fights since its pretty much best gun/armor combination wins, to go with such thin armor.

Tread carefully around T-34/85's, M4's, and tigers, as they will quickly kill you.

As a side note, try to avoid quartering shots on T-34's (both models) as you tend to get a lot of ricochets and hits with no effect. Also, in some rare cases, I've seen T-34/76's, survive a point-blank hit from a panzer. I've hit one aiming directly at it (with the cross-hairs on it, not the range marks)only to have it kill me with a HVAP round.
