Pz.Kpfw.IV Ausf.E Tauchpanzer with Betriebsstoffanhanger

The Tauchpanzer was an attempt to make a tank capable of being submersed, for example to take part in beach landings or cross rivers. A number of Panzer III's and Panzer IV Ausf.D's were converted to participate in operation Sealion, but of course were never used. The Panzer IV Tauchpanzer's did however see use in various river crossings on the Eastern front. A small number of Panzer IV Ausf.E were converted in this way.
