Sale price £33.99 Regular price £37.99

The Panzerkampfwagen V (or Panther) was a German medium tank deployed during World War II on the Eastern and Western Fronts in Europe from mid-1943 to 1945, during which period about 6,000 were manufactured. It was intended to replace Panzers III and IV and counter the Soviet T-34. However, it served alongside the Panzers and the heavier Tiger I until the end of the war. In the fields of firepower and protection there was little to match it. Armed with a 7.5 cm KwK 42 L/70 gun and two MG34 machine guns, the Panther had more or less the same engine as the Tiger I but its frontal hull armour was tougher and penetrative firepower superior and, being lighter and faster was better on rough terrain but its weaker side-armour made it vulnerable to flanking fire. It excelled when fighting in open country at long range. 842 Ausf.D variants were produced between January and September 1943.
