The vehicle is the standard medium tank of the [[Wehrmacht#Battlefield V|German]] faction, and is the equivalent of the [[British Army#Battlefield V|British]] [[Valentine|Valentine Mk VIII]]. The Panzer IV can seat three passengers; a driver, hull gunner and turret-mounted top gunner, the latter two using [[MG34#Vehicle Mounted MG 34|MG 34]]s. In comparison to the Valentine the Panzer IV presents both a larger target, and has a larger gun by default - the 75mm KwK 37 has greater damage and splash at the cost of a longer reload and substantial drop at range over the Valentine's 40mm QF 2pdr.

The right side is orientated towards anti-infantry combat, with the [[Spotting Flares#Battlefield V|Flare Launcher]] aiding in locating targets, and [[Zimmerit]], [[Improved Transverse Rotation]] and [[S-Mine#Battlefield V|S-Mine Launcher]] deterring close-in attacks. The middle choices of [[Fire Extinguisher#Battlefield V|Field Repair]] and [[Canister Shell#Battlefield V|Case Rounds]] improves general performance and effectiveness against soft targets, respectively.

Short-barrel panzer iv

A Panzer IV in real life

The Panzer IV is a German medium tank used in World War II. The Panzer IV was the only German tank to see combat over the whole of World War II, from Norway to Poland to the Battle of the Bulge and the Fall of Berlin.

During the later stages of the war, it was supplemented by the Panther tank, which was to replace it. Regardless, the venerable Panzer IV remained in service to the end of the war with Germany, and beyond in other countries. The Panzer IV depicted in-game is an Ausf. F1 variant.


Battlefield 1942

The Panzer IV is a vehicle featured in Battlefield 1942. It is used by the Wehrmacht and Afrika Korps, as well as the German Elite Forces in Battlefield 1942: Secret Weapons of WWII. It is the direct equivalent (in stats) to the American and British Sherman and Soviet T-34-85.

Battlefield V

"The Panzer IV was one of the main German medium tank during the war, and it saw combat on all fronts. Many improvements were made to it over time, such as thicker armor, more powerful engine and many main gun revisions."

— In-game description


The Panzer IV is featured in Battlefield V, first appearing in the Battlefield 5 Official Reveal Trailer, as well as in promotional renders and concept art.

Singleplayer

The Panzer IV is one of the most common vehicles encountered in singleplayer. It is seen in both the 1941 and 1944 sections of the prologue My Country Calling, and appears as an enemy vehicle in the Under No Flag and Tirailleur war stories. Friendly Panzer IVs also feature in the first chapter of The Last Tiger.

Multiplayer

The vehicle is the standard medium tank of the German faction, and is the equivalent of the British Valentine Mk VIII. The Panzer IV can seat three passengers; a driver, hull gunner and turret-mounted top gunner, the latter two using MG 34s. In comparison to the Valentine the Panzer IV presents both a larger target, and has a larger gun by default - the 75mm KwK 37 has greater damage and splash at the cost of a longer reload and substantial drop at range over the Valentine's 40mm QF 2pdr. The armament along with many other features can be changed by equipping specializations.

The left side of the specialization tree focuses on survivability and performance against enemy armor, with the addition of Track Skirts, AP Rounds and the long-barrel Pak 40 L/43 which has increased muzzle velocity and damage at the cost of fire rate. The right side is orientated towards anti-infantry combat, with the Flare Launcher aiding in locating targets, and Zimmerit, Improved Transverse Rotation and S-Mine Launcher deterring close-in attacks. The middle choices of Field Repair and Case Rounds improves general performance and effectiveness against soft targets, respectively.
