|Tank Machine Gun - Panzer III|
Heavy machine gun
The machine gun is very similar to the machine guns mounted on the heavier Panther and Tiger. It fires 7.92 mm rounds from a 250-round magazine, and has a standard optical sight fitted for firing at targets a long range off. It is the primary defense for the Panzer III against infantry and unarmored vehicles.
- The Panzer III's machine gun is the same as that of the machine guns on other German tanks.
- The machine on the Panzer III is actually the MG 34, an older version of the MG 42.
