The Panzer III is the common name of a medium tank that was developed in the 1930s by Germany and used extensively in World War II. It weighed 23 tonnes and was fitted with a 5cm cannon as well as 2 or 3 7.92mm machine guns. The Panzer III was used in the campaigns against Poland, France, the Soviet Union and in North Africa. A handful were still in use in Normandy and at Arnhem in 1944. The Panzer III was well designed in that it had a three-man turret crew (gunner, loader and commander), leaving the commander free to concentrate on commanding the tank and maintaining situational awareness. Although other medium tanks of the time also had this feature, most tanks of the late 1930s had fewer than three men in the turret crew, potentially providing the Panzer III with a "fightability" advantage over otherwise similar tanks.

The real Tiger I was a German heavy tank used in World War II, produced from late 1942 as an answer to the challenge of facing the unexpectedly formidable Soviet armor encountered in the initial months of Operation Barbarossa. The Tiger I design gave the Wehrmacht its first main battle tank that was capable of using its most formidable piece of ordnance, the 88 mm gun, which had previously showed its convincing effectiveness against both aircraft and other tanks. The Tiger differed from earlier German tanks principally in its design philosophy. Its predecessors balanced mobility, protection, and firepower. The Tiger I represented a new German approach that emphasised firepower and armour at the expense of mobility.

The real Panzer III Medium Tank was intended as the main German battle tank of the Second World War, capable of engaging and destroying opposing tank forces. Until then the Panzer III had been the only German designed tank armed with a gun designed to penetrate enemy armour. The Panzer III was used in the campaigns against Poland, France, the Soviet Union and in North Africa. A handful were still in use in Normandy and at Arnhem in 1944. The Tauchpanzer III was a version of the Panzer III modified to operate underwater for up to twenty minutes. The idea was for the tanks to be taken close to the British coast on specially adapted ships, and then lowered into the sea. They would then drive along the seabed before emerging on the invasion beaches.
