The Panzers: part 3: NBFZ
The NBFZ was the first German foray into the world of heavy tanks since WWI( with the exception of the Grosstraktor experimental series of vehicles). They were, like their British and Russian counterparts, multi-turreted vehicles. They had one 75 mm gun and two machine guns in separate turrets, the Krupp version also mounting a coaxial 37 mm. Only the prototypes were built, but all were used in the Norwegian campaign.
