PG (Panzer Grade) thread / NPT (National Pipe Thread)

Searching for cable strain reliefs, I ran across the option of a "PG thread". I was told by the manufacturing rep that it was "Panzer Grade" - a specification originating near WWII relating to the panzer tanks.

What is the US standard and/or NPT equivalent?
