Panzer I F Light Tank (MM12) Panzer I F (GE007)
includes one Panzer I F Tank.

In the German Army, as every army, the infantry generals wanted tanks to support infantry attacks rather than fighting their own battles elsewhere. They were impressed by the small and cheap British Matilda and the French Renault 10-tonne infantry support tanks, and demanded a similar vehicle.

Mid-war Monsters
In our research we have uncovered lots of really interesting experimental tanks. Some were just designs that were never completed. Others were completed as prototypes, and some even saw small-scale field testing!

These tanks were weird and wonderful, ranging from a 100-ton monster and a First World War relic, to a tank with two side-by-side main guns, an armoured car weighing more than a tank, and a machine-gun armed light tank with the armour of a heavy tank!

Mid-war Monsters
Panzer I F Light Tank (MM12) The resulting VK1801 design was a machine-gun armed 21-tonne light tank with 80mm of armour, over twice the weight and with considerably more protection than the Allied equivalents.

Although based on the Panzer I, the VK1801 featured torsion bar suspension, interleaved road wheels, and an up-rated engine with 50% more power. The commander’s turret replaced the old MG13 machine-guns with the latest MG34 machine-guns and featured a cupola with five periscopes for all-round vision.
All-in-all it was a magnificent piece of engineering, but it weighed as much as a medium tank and cost nearly as much to produce! In December 1939 the VK1801 was renamed the Panzer I F and 100 were ordered, but production was cancelled after thirty were produced. A second order for 100 was also cancelled.

Wide Tracks
Some excellent tank designs have successfully utilised wider tracks, allowing them to cross almost any terrain.

If a vehicle with Wide Tracks becomes Bogged Down while attempting to cross Rough Terrain, roll again. On a roll of 4+ the vehicle immediately frees itself and continues moving.
Panzer I F Light Tank (MM12) The Panzer I F is a well-designed infantry support vehicle. Its armour protects it from any anti-tank weapon it is likely to face. The 20”/50cm wide tracks enable it to cross any terrain in its path, while a complex but efficient interleaved suspension distributes its weight evenly.
