E-35 – E-35 Standardpanzer History: (From: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Entwicklung_series) E-35 The E-25 designs, in the 25-50 tons weight class, were to be the replacements of all Panzer III and Panzer IV based designs. This family would include medium reconnaissance vehicles, medium Jagdpanzer and heavy Waffenträger.
Alternate History: In 1941, Hitler ordered the design of a new medium tank that later became known as the various VK3002 designs and prototypes. As 1943 drew to a close, the war raged on and Allied strategic bombing slowed factory production lines to a halt, officers both on the front lines and those within for the armaments industry realized that the Panzer IV is nearing the end of its useful life cycle even with the upgrades that are constantly rushed to the front lines. Even with the introduction of the Panther tank, the need for a lighter but well-armed medium tracked reconnaissance vehicle or medium tank was still left unsatisfied. As a result, the VK3002 prototypes were once again examined. Due to the shortage of raw materials and the need to produce battle tested vehicles such as the Panther, it was not until 1944 that this new tank, now grouped into the larger “E-series” was finally produced.

The E-35 boasts an incredibly light weight. the Maximum road speed: Approx. Armor thickness can only be considered good but not impenetrable like the Tiger II.88kg/cm Petrol. This gun was used during the prototype stage but later dropped in favor of the 10H64 due to the newer gun’s longer range and higher penetration. 45mm 37 . 250km priority. There was debate on whether to use the Armor type: Krupp Cemented Armor 8H63 or 10H64 as the 8H63 shared ammunition components already in use by the German Army but had less penetrating power and a lower effective range. . Another interesting addition was the standardization of installing infra-red searchlights (FG 1250) originally used by Panther tank. compact but hard hitting gun in a superbly agile platform.69 – 18.

Hull known to use similar construction to Tiger II. Recognition and Manufacturing Features: Hull – Well slopped glacis with driver’s hatch in the center with no bow machine gun position. Turret – Turret ring size same as the Panther. Slightly sloped sides and rear. While doctrine maintains that it is a medium reconnaissance vehicle. Turret with well sloped angles on all sides in a forward position. Replacements and repair simplified by sharing major components with other German armored vehicles. similar in line to the doctrine of current NATO Main Battle Tanks. Spall-liner installed. Spall-liner installed. Manufacturing – Factories producing Panthers and Panzer IV could begin production of this tank with a minimal to moderate amount of retooling.E-35 Standardpanzer (Above): Artist concept of 2 E-35 tanks in action against enemy units on the Eastern Front. Hull is face-hardened to improve armor effectiveness. Slightly smaller than Panther chassis. The high top speed and low ground pressure allows it to travel quickly cross country to perform lightning raids behind enemy lines or attack from routes no accessible to enemy armor. This vehicle is intended to be easy to be mass-produced but powerful. - - - . it still had enough armor to engage most of its contemporaries fielded by other armies.
