This Pz.Kpfw.IV Ausf.F2 features the round single-baffle muzzle brake on its 7.5cm Kw.K.40 L/43. There are no vision ports in the turret sides, and the loader's front turret viewing port would be just to the right of the main gun if present. The drive sprocket is dished, and the idler is the tubular welded model. The split hatch of the commander's cupola is obvious, and a stowage bin is installed on the rear of the turret. The radio operator's vision slot in the front corner of the superstructure is visible. To actually determine whether this tank was an Ausf.F2 or Ausf.G, it would be necessary to know the chassis serial number.
