The Panther was developed for the German Army more than 70 years ago. It was one of the most efficient and famous vehicles of WWII. It was created together with the well-known Tiger. The earlier Ausf D had made its combat debut at the battle of Kursk but as it had been rushed into service too quickly it was plagued with transmission and engine faults. During the following two years of the war this powerful tank was present in all war zones: Italy, France as well as during the final battles on German soil. It proved its qualities against its adversaries, from Sherman to Stalin.
