The Panzerbefehlswagen IV, or Pz.Bfw. IV, is a German command tank based on the Pz.Kpfw. IV Ausf. J series of medium tanks and was put in service in early 1944. While the main armament, the 75 mm Kw.K. 40, was equal to the regular Ausf. J, the tank was equipped with an improved powerful radio system and additional antennas, allowing the loader to act as secondary radio operator. Also, the tank is equipped with wire-mesh skirts instead of the solid metal skirts of previous versions, aiming at offering increased protection against HEAT projectiles such as infantry rockets.

In game, the tank will be a premium vehicle for the German army and come with a battle rating of approximately 4.7.
