Panzer I is a German light tank.


More a tankette than a tank, the Panzer I is armed with two 7.92mm MG13 machine guns which can be fired individually. One of the machine guns is loaded with armor piercing "SMK" rounds which can penetrate soft-skinned vehicles. Though being obsolete when WW2 broke out, it saw extensive combat in the early phase of the war, and suffered high losses.

It can be found on maps prior to summer 1941 such as 4006-Dunkirk Perimeter. Some tanks were sold to the Chinese prior to World War II. Examples can be found in 3710-Shanghai Nights, 3712-Fall of Nanking.
