A Panzer IV Ausf. F1 Infantry Support Tank equipped with a short-barreled main gun that is effective against infantry and light vehicles. The Command Tank provides defensive bonuses to units in an aura around it.


This version of the Panzer IV has a short barreled 75mm cannon with a higher rate of fire but lower damage and penetration, making it weaker against tanks but better against infantry and light vehicles. This tank is ideal for support as nearby friendly infantry and vehicles receive 10% less damage from most attacks.
