I must admit that PzKpfw3 was the first thing that crossed my mind but:

The hull doesn't look level, which simply didn't look right for a 3.

The turret doesn't like wide enough for a 3.

The driver's vision slit occupies too much of the front plate (suggesting the whole thing isn't as wide as it looks.

The gun slits in the mantlet scream 2 at me. The 3 always had a proper mantlet.
