The development of the Panzer IV/70 (and its predecessor, the Sturmgeschütz III or StuG III) came from German experiences in World War I. Infantry lacked the necessary firepower to engage fixed defences effectively so an infantry support vehicle was proposed that could carry a gun that could knock out these emplacements.

The effectiveness of the StuG III on the Eastern Front led to the requirement for a new assault gun with heavier armour and firepower, capable of knocking out Allied armour as well as positions. The Panzer IV/70 achieved both goals featuring thick sloped armour plates and the long 7.5cm PaK 42 gun.
