Also known as M4А3(76)W HVSS. At the end of August 1944, a new bogie suspension was designed. The vehicle variant was mass-produced and saw battle beginning in late March 1945, with a total of 4542 vehicles of both suspension types manufactured.
In November 1944 the Krupp company presented several avant-projects aimed to upgrade armament of tanks and tank destroyers in service. Among them there was a project of mounting a Panther's Schmalturm (tight turret) on the Pz IV Ausf. J. The project was canceled due to phasing out the Pz IV production.
Developed at Factory No. 183 in 1941 under the designation A-43. The vehicle was to replace the T-34. The A-43 was conceived to feature a torsion bar suspension, a V-5 engine, a new transmission, a commander’s cupola, and front armor enhanced to 60 mm.
