Panzerkampfwagen IV Ausf F1

Original order was for 500 to be built by Krupp-Gruson. This was increased when Vomag received an order for 100 and Nibelungenwerke for 25. Before these were all completed the OKH ordered that the rest of the order have 7.5 cm KwK 40 L/43 installed as soon as possible and a total of 25 were converted to Ausf F2s.
Supplementary armor plates abandoned. Improved ball mount for MG. Single door on side was replaced by double door. New sprocket and idler wheels. The vision and pistol ports, driver's visor, hull MG mount, and turret doors were modified because of increased armor.

Panzerkampfwagen IV Ausf G

Initially 1,750 were ordered, and of those 10 chassis were used for Hummel prototypes and 53 chassis for Brummbär. Dropped vision ports from turret sides. New cupola with thicker armor and single hatch cover. In the summer of 1942 a new muzzle brake with a double baffle and a system to allow transfer of coolant to aid in cold weather starting was installed (Kühlwasser-Austauscher). In January 1943 the driver's scope was eliminated. In 1943 Schürzen we installed to the side of the hull and the turret. Late production Ausf Gs had new drive sprocket and radio antenna was moved to left hull rear. 75 mm gun had double baffle muzzle brake. Starting on June 20, 1942, extra armor was bolted or welded on to approximately 700. 1,275 received the 7.5 cm KwK 40 L/43. From late March 1943 the 7.5 cm KwK 40 L/48 was installed.
