Some Ausf.F tanks received the longer KwK 40 L/43 gun and were temporarily named Ausf. F2. Differences between the Ausf.F1 and the Ausf.F2 included an altered gun mantlet, internal travel lock for the main weapon and a new gun cradle. Three months after beginning production, the Panzer IV Ausf.F2 was renamed Ausf.G. Pieces are suitable for use with the Zvezda Art of Tactic expandable board game.
