Panzer I Ausf.F
The Panzer I Ausf.F was intended as an infantry support tank, the Panzer I Ausf.F had a maximum armour thickness of 80mm (3.15 in) and weighed between 18 and 21 tonnes. The Ausf.F was armed with two 7.92mm MG-34s. Thirty were produced in 1940, and a second order of 100 was later canceled. In order to compensate for the increased weight, a new 150 horsepower (110 kW) Maybach HL45 Otto engine was used, allowing a maximum road speed of 25 kilometers per hour (15.5 mph). Eight of the thirty tanks produced were sent to the 1st Panzer Division in 1943 and saw combat at the Battle of Kursk. The rest were given to several army schools for training and evaluation purposes
