Barbarossa
Panzer 38(t) E / F (Uparmoured) (GE023) After the experiences of the Polish campaign, an increase in armour protect was demanded. From November 1940, the frontal armour was increased to 50mm by riveting two 25mm thick plates together and attaching it to all front surfaces of the vehicle. The turret side armour and the armour of the sides of the fighting compartment were also increased.

Protected Ammo
Many tanks are destroyed not by the enemy shell but by their own ammunition being hit by white-hot fragments of armour and exploding. The chances of this were minimised by providing a safe place for stowing ammunition within the vehicle such as an armoured compartment or inside a water-filled jacket.


If forced to bail out, crews of tanks with protected ammunition are far more confident when it comes to remounting their vehicle quickly.

Tanks with Protected Ammo re-roll all failed Motivation Tests to Remount Bailed Out vehicles in the Starting Step (see page 102 of the main rulebook).
