Bergepanzer IV

History: From October 1944, Panzer IV chassis were converted to Bergepanzer.  A large wooden box-body was mounted on the top of the fighting compartment in place of the turret.  A derrick crane was provided for, by mountings on the rear engine deck.  These Bergepanzer were to be used in conjunction with the Bergeanker (recovery anchor).  Thirty-six Bergepanzer IV were converted from October 1944 to December 1944.
