The Panther had a five-man crew. The weight of the production model was increased to 45 metric tons from the original plans for a 35 ton tank. Hitler had personally reviewed the final designs and insisted on an increase in the thickness of the frontal armor - the front glacis plate was increased from 60 mm (2.4 in) to 80 mm (3.1 in) and the turret front plate was increased from 80mm to 100 mm. German Panther tank crew's tactics involved presenting their frontal armour towards enemy tanks as much as possible. The Panther was born out of the shock of combat on the Eastern Front during the 1941 Operation Barbarossa Panther Armour Quality than forecast and it must be therefore be concluded that German plate is not up to the standard of our Homogeneous M.Q. tank armour. In point of fact the German plate appears far too brittle and large cracks develop from any penetration. These became so bad during the course of the trial that whole sections fell away. Even the side armor of the Panther could be penetrated at very short ranges. To increase protection against anti-tank rifles, 8 mm steel sheets, Schürzen (skirts) were hung on rails along the side of the tanks. These steel sheets caused the shots to tumble, preventing them from penetrating the tank's armor

Hitler ordered that the T-34 be copied and the result was the Panther, which saw action for the first time at Kursk in 1943 The Panzer V Panther tank was produced with 3 main variants, with the first vehicles completed in early 1943 and finally arriving to combat units in summer..

Blitz Hangar v1.15.7 (client v7.4.210) Policie Additional side armour in the form of Schürzen could be placed on the sides hanging to cover the suspension and hull side from being penetrated by Soviet anti-tank rifle fire.

Introduction When it comes to the tanks of World War 2 few can be said to have had the abilities of the Panther tank. While it is true that the T-34 had a direct lead up to the design of the Panther tank it was the Panther that took it to a whole new level and created arguably the best tank of World War 2 when you consider the combination of armour, speed and hitting power American tank guns also pose a serious threat to the Panther - the 76mm guns in late Sherman tanks and M10/M18 tank destroyers pierce Panther's front armour on a save roll 1 or 2; the 90mm gun in M26 Pershing and M36 Jackson does the trick on save rolls 1, 2 or 3 Though initially mechanically unreliable at her inception, the Panther medium tank of the German Army went on to become one of the finest battle tanks in all of World War 2.

Some 7,000 were made, combining firepower, armour protection and mobility that was unmatched by any other tank of the period Introduction Previously, I discussed the camouflage schemes and patterns the Wehrmacht utilized with its ground vehicles, and provided imagery to support the information I provided.
