Panther is a German tank.

DescriptionEdit

The Panther was the German's response to the Soviet T-34 tank. While it was planned to replace both Panzer III and Panzer IV, it supplemented the latter from its introduction in mid-1943 to the end of the war.

As a medium tank, the Panther has a powerful 75mm KwK 42 L/70 main gun to take on most tanks at the time and excellent frontal sloping armour while maintaining good mobility for its size. The trade-off is weaker side armour, making it vulnerable to flanking attacks.

The Ausf D variant is crewed by one player, who controls both the 75mm gun and the coaxial machine gun in the turret. Both Ausf A and Ausf G have three positions available with the addition of two machine guns on top of the turret and in the ball mount at the front of the hull. The machine gunner on top of the turret also has access to smoke dischargers for deploying a smoke screen when needed.

TriviaEdit

The Panther has a tank destroyer variant in the form of Jagdpanther.
