Gun mantlet tends to sometimes absorb shells. The chassis of the new Panther consisted of 7 all-metal rollers on a single torsion bar. War Thunder masterfully pulls off a tricky balancing act by offering both an arcade style frag-fest mode and more delicate simulation gameplay. The battle, against the mostly M4 Sherman, equipped 4th Armored Division, routed the Germans after they suffered heavy casualties, while the Allies only losing 32 armoured fighting vehicles, a testament on how crew training and tactical advantage have a big impact on tank warfare. In February of 1943, it was decided that Panther II, in its design would resemble Tiger II and would have many common components such as tracks, transmission, suspension and road wheels. Over the years the game has become a global encyclopedia of military vehicles and battles from the last 100 years and gives the player the opportunity of … The main armament consisted of an 88 mm 8,8 cm KwK 43 L/70 tank gun with a long 70-calibre barrel, the same gun which was installed on the Tiger II (P). The best tactic to survive is to not get hit by an enemy attacker, as the crew is quite cramped and will typically be disabled with one well-placed shot. The M48 Patton tank was designed to replace the previous M47 Pattons and M4 Shermans. Transmission is mounted in the front, meaning that the tank can be immobilized from both front and the rear. The Americans captured the Panther II chassis and it was shipped to the states. MAN's design had a twin torsion bar, the interleaved suspension system (like the Tiger I) with the turret situated in the middle of the hull, plus had a petrol Maybach engine. Further work, however, virtually stopped. The Armor Journal. If you advance too far from your allies, the likelihood of your tank ending in a fiery ammunition explosion increases exponentially. This combat vehicle was developed by the company MAN in 1941 and 1942 and was intended to become the Wehrmacht's primary tank. Bad turret traverse. When the tank's weaknesses are understood, it can be used to great effect to destroy the enemy. The Panther II is a classic medium tank. The French raised a regiment of 50 Panthers from 1944 to 1947, when they were replaced by the new ARL 44 tanks. 184 were operational at the start of the operation on July 5, this dropped to 40 within two days. By late 1944, the company had only managed to build one tank hull, which for testing purposes was fitted with a turret from a production Panther G. The testing was never completed, and the tank was captured by American troops. Waddling Penguin Publishing, LLC, n.d. The mechanical breakdown, partly from the flaws in the machine, can also be attributed to the poor crew training given, which showed by crew overburdening the transmission or lacking regular maintenance on the tank. The default APCBC shell has fantastic penetration, and damage potential at all ranges. The war ended with only one Panther II chassis produced. It was introduced during the Closed Beta Test for Ground Forces before Update 1.41 as a main tree vehicle, however, as of Update 1.91 "Night Vision" it was shifted to become a gift vehicle for players who previously owned it. The production plants expanded from MAN to Daimler-Benz, MNH, and Henschel for increased output. V Ausf.D (Panther D) is a rank III German medium tank with a battle rating of 5.7 (AB) and 5.3 (RB/SB).It was introduced during the Closed Beta Test for Ground Forces before Update 1.41. Simply because of its great weight and high fuel consumption which made it extremely slow. And, it won't do much damage to enemy aircraft. All of those modifications increased Panther II's weight to 47 tons. Cannot angle too much. At this range, the enemy's gun shells will lose most of their penetrative qualities compared to the Panther's gun and will (hopefully) not be able to penetrate the Panther's weak point on the turret, plus you have the benefit on their lower aim accuracy due to distance. In March of 1943, plans were laid that the production of the first series would start in late 1943 or early 1944 and that by spring of 1944, full-scale production of Panther II would start. All in all, the Panther II's armament is decent. Side armour protection was 60 mm thick while frontal armour protection was 100 mm thick. 156 Panthers were initially present between two Panzer regiments, but this increased by seven regiments after the Allied invasion, boosting the strength to 432 tanks. D (Panther D) is a rank III German medium tank This made the tank rather economic for its fighting purposes despite being over-engineered. In the 1960s, the Panther II chassis was transferred to the Smithsonian Institute, who proceeded to give the tank to the Patton Museum at Fort Knox in the 1970s. Full-scale production of the tank began in January 1943. The Panther's rushed development and commitment into battle caused the design to have many flaws inhibiting its full potential. The Panther development started as far back as 1938 as a replacement to the Panzer IIIs and Panzer IVs. Despite that, production was often delayed due to Allied air bombing, which targeted the Maybach engine plant and DB, MAN, and MNH tank factories. Sometimes after 1946, a Panther G turret was added onto the chassis while it was at the Aberdeen Proving Grounds. Examples from the table are the US 90mm M3 L/51 and the Soviet 85mm ZiS-S-53 L/54.6. Cold War allies, especially other NATO countries. It was officially standardized as the Tank, Combat, Full Tracked: 105-mm Gun, M60 in March 1959. The gun mantlet is not that large, but it is very tough. With its powerful gun, it can very effectively take out opponents at its battle rating at both close and long ranges. The Pz.Kpfw. © 2021 Gaijin Network Ltd. All rights reserved. Allies will help you by covering your weak points on your sides. On the Western Front, the Panthers began being present in large numbers after the Invasion of Normandy. the 85mm D5T or 76mm M1. Two were captured by the Polish forces, who used them against the German forces. D tanks. Its ability to knock tanks out was better than that of the majority of Soviet, American, and British tank guns. NACM, Ft.Benning. Thus, it represents a threat for every tank on the battlefield, even at long ranges. Creation of a smoke screen in front of the vehicle, Reduces the error and increases the maximum measurable distance of the rangefinder. Enemy shells that enter the sides will likely destroy the tank. The Panthers also took place in Operation Grief, being disguised as M10 tank destroyers to trick American soldiers. The sides of the hull is lined with a lot of ammo. Then MAN revised their design, and a special commission by Hitler decided on the MAN design in May 1942, to which Hitler approved after reviewing it. The VK 20 was abandoned for the VK 30.02 in April 1942. Suspension wheels, tracks and torsion bars are 20 mm thick. Following the closure of the Patton Museum, the Panther II is currently at the in-construction National Armor and Cavalry Museum at Fort Benning.[1]. Fast top speed, good hull traverse. But, this can be made up for by careful positioning and the use of the tank's neutral steering. One of the reasons the MAN was approved was that its turret was already in production while the DB used a completely new design. This page was last edited on 3 February 2021, at 13:37.

RideR2's Realistic gunsight (TZF4a, TZF 5a/b/d/e/f/f2, TZF 9b/b1/c/d, TZF 12/a) for Pzkpfw II, Pzkpfw III, Pzkpfw IV, Pzkpfw V, Pzkpfw VI, https://wiki.warthunder.com/index.php?title=Panther_D&oldid=92838, Cast homogeneous armour (Gun mantlet, Cupola). Skins and camouflages for the Panther D from live.warthunder.com. This tank's hull is kept in the Patton Museum of Cavalry and Armor in Fort Knox. The Panther also influenced the French AMX 50 tank design, and its gun was derived onto the AMX 13 light tank. The interleaved suspension wheels means that there are places where it will be a cumulative 20 + 20 mm extra armour. The M26 Pershing was a heavy tank/medium tank of the United States Army.The tank was named after General of the Armies John J. Pershing, who led the American Expeditionary Force in Europe in World War I.It was used in the last months of World War II during the Invasion of Germany and extensively during the Korean War.. It won't pose much of a threat to any vehicle that doesn't have exposed crew members, and it won't do much damage to aircraft. Only five Panther battalions, 96 Panthers for each battalion, remained on the Western Front to fight the Allies. It can, however, be used to highlight enemy vehicles to friendlies, but it comes with the risk of alerting enemies of an enemy vehicle. To prevent this, it is helpful to wiggle the turret from side to side. 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. Comparing to a max -4 km/h reverse speed on the rest of the Panthers, the Panther II provides a -12 km/h reverse speed, which can help a lot in battles. Marketplace to Buy and Sell War Thunder Accounts. Taking a straight shot from any contemporary tank is almost guaranteed to end in disaster. Unlike the other Panthers, this tank actually has a really nice reverse speed. The most prominent flaw that lasted throughout the war was the weak final drive due to using a double spur system that made it more prone to failure from the Panther's torque requirements, which is averaged at around 150 km before failing. France was the most notable user of the Panther tanks after World War II due to the large quantities of operable vehicles left behind by the Germans during the Normandy invasion. About This Game War Thunder is the most comprehensive free-to-play, cross-platform, MMO military game for Windows, Linux, Mac, PlayStation®4 and Xbox One dedicated to aviation, armoured vehicles, and naval craft from World War II and the Cold War.

Beginning a new generation of German tanks, the Panther medium tank was one of the most iconic tanks of World War II with its high power 75 mm gun and heavy front sloping armour. The slow turret traverse will also be a lower drawback at a longer range as you will not need to turn your turret as much to aim at different targets. Close distance is not the greatest ally for the Panther, with its weak side armour and gun mantlet, it can be easily penetrated by most other tanks at its rank if it can get these points. However, only the frontal glacis is nigh impenetrable, the side armour and turret is very vulnerable and care must be taken to keep this safe. Development of the new tank design was assigned to the company Henschel & Sohn. The turret traverse is slow, which makes close-quarters engagements and urban combat difficult. BR-365A, BR-471). Most were used to identify the type of unit the vehicle was a part of (such as recon, signals, heavy tank battalion, etc) and individual tactical symbols and insignia used to identify the division or regiment the vehicle belonged to. V Ausf. Stay near the rear of the line while more mobile and aggressive allies charge forward and attract the enemy's attention so you can get the jump on them. D also had the initial turret curved gun mantlet that was introduced to the Panther, though there were faults with the design as explained below. The tank's main armament was a 75 mm 7,5 cm KwK 42 L/70 tank gun produced by the company Rheinmetall-Borsig, with a long 70-caliber barrel. It is not recommended to load anything other than PzGr 39/43 shells since it can readily hull break most opponents that have such a feature and it provides consistent ballistic characteristics, while still maintaining a fairly good penetration against sloped armour. According to Heinz Guderian, five days into the offensive, only 10 operation Panthers were available with 25 completely lost, 100 in need of repairs, and 60 per cent of those mechanical breakdowns were easily repaired. Panther II is a rank IV German medium tank In January of 1943, Adolf Hitler agreed on the development of Panther with increased armour protection especially for the needs of the Eastern Front. The Panther was first issued to the Eastern Front, arming the 51st and 52nd Tank Battalions. However, despite being built for a 30-ton design, Hitler decided to increase the armour on the MAN design and the weight went from 30 tons to 45 tons. As with all Panthers, this tank has excellent mobility both on and off road. The program was called VK 20 and it called for a 20 ton tracked vehicle design by Krupp, Daimler-Benz, and MAN. Panther II's Schmalturm (narrow) turret was slightly different than that of Panther F. The turret's armour protection was significantly increased if compared to any other Panther turret. Its armour protection was significantly increased if compared to any other Panther variant produced. Same applies to lower BRs too? One method is to exploit the Panther's long gun range with distance. There is some night vision gear on the drivers side of the upper hull. Tracks and lower side of the hull are covered by 5 mm thick armour plate, protecting them from HEAT and HE shells. 43 L/71, https://wiki.warthunder.com/index.php?title=Panther_II&oldid=95236, Cast homogeneous armour (Gun mantlet, Cupola). It was planned to arm Panther II with the latest 75 mm KwK 42 L/100 or even 88 mm KwK 43 L/71 (without a muzzle brake) gun mounted in the newly designed narrow turret – Schmalturm (designed by Rheinmetall in 1944 and to be produced by Daimler-Benz). Thus, Panther should be played with a self-established "safe boundary" around the tank to stay safe from flankers. NACM, Ft.Benning. Same turret as the Panther F, but at a much higher BR. The engine sound of the T-80 tank and its modifications has been reworked. The gunner has a really nice set of optics that provides 2.5x-6x of magnification. In 1947, an evaluation was written by the French War Ministry on the Panthers which even made their own assessment of the Panther that pointed out most of the flaws of the Panthers, especially the mechanical failure and the deficiency of the armour later in the war due to alloy shortages. This won't do much damage to any enemies except those with exposed crew members. The vehicle's mobility is also quite good. This project was designated Panther II and its design was planned along with the development of Tiger II. The Panther II's coaxial 7.92 mm MG 34 is rather anaemic, and thus, not very versatile. Very poor turret traverse making it hard to respond to flankers or to get the gun on target. During the time Fairy Tail was disbanded he was a member of the Magic Council. The new tank was to have thicker armour (100 mm in the front and 60 mm on the sides) and was to be equipped with a Schmalturm turret. Having adopted the Tiger II tank in the autumn of 1943, the Ministry of Armaments ordered the development of a new Panther II tank, specifying that maximum compatibility between the assembly of the two tanks be maintained. TAJ Walkarounds." Instead, Maybach HL 230 P 30 engine was mounted and Maybach HL234 was later on due to being completed in August of 1945, for future Panther series. Although this doesn't always work, it can sometimes throw off the enemy's aim enough so that the shot doesn't do much damage. The M60 is an American second generation main battle tank (MBT). Hasty development and adoption of tanks featuring a new design contributed to numerous minor flaws. Panther Lily (パンサー・リリー Pansā Rirī) is an Exceed that originally worked for the kingdom of Edolas as the Magic Militia's First Division Commander of the Royal Army.3 He is a member of the Fairy Tail Guild and is Gajeel Redfox's companion. The gun mantlet ring around the gun barrel is 300 mm thick. with a battle rating of 5.7 (AB) and 5.3 (RB/SB). Despite these issues, the Panther was deemed critical in the Battle of Kursk in Operation Citadel, Hitler delayed the operation so more Panthers can reach the front. The Panther used the same engine as the Tiger I, the Mayback HL 210 P30 engine, and had a similar suspension system, the Schachtellaufwerk interleaved wheel system, which complicated maintenance issues. The vehicle's combat debut was the Battle of Kursk, where the variant exhibited low technical reliability. Can get to positions in time. Lower glacis often catches fire or brakes transmission when penetrated, leaving the tank immobile and vulnerable. Excellent cannon has a range of ammo for any type of enemy: great stock AP for common targets (eg. Although heavily armoured, it can still get frontally penetrated and one-shot easily by a rather common tank: The small calibre of the gun means the main APCBC shell has rather small amounts of explosive filler, resulting in it often being unable to one shot enemies. The Panther II is a medium tank that performs in many roles. The optimal ammo loadout is 15 rounds, since it eliminates the ammo racks at the sides of the hull, while still providing a decent quantity of ammunition. The Panthers served the rest of the war as quick-reaction forces to fight off Allied offensives on both fronts. The captured Panthers were used until they became immobilized and were destroyed to prevent recapture by the Germans. This made the Panther one of the best-armoured vehicle in World War II. When the operation turned and the Soviet counteroffensive pushed the Germans away from Kursk, the Panther loss rose to 156 on August 11, with many more lost as the Soviet kept gaining ground. Players looking for a quick fix can jump right into the action, while those looking for a historically accurate experience can spend more time mastering the controls of each airplane or tank. D was produced from January to September 1943. So the gun will have less gun depression than normal over this area of the tank. 24 Feb. 2017. This combat vehicle embodied the spirit of German tank construction: a front-mounted transmission compartment, rear engine compartment, and an individual, staggered torsion suspension designed by the engineer G. Kniepkamp. D can also be distinguished by a unique machine gun port with a shape of a vertical "letterbox" flap from where the machine gun was fired (this was replaced by a standard ball mount in later variants). Bulgaria and Romania received Panthers from the Soviets as aid, which they used until the 1950s. Never try to angle the Panther, its side is too vulnerable, especially above the tracks. According to German classification, the Panther was considered a medium tank. The MAN design was made into a prototype in September 1942, when it was officially accepted after testing and named the Panzerkampfwagen V Panther. By September 1943, the companies Daimler-Benz AG, Henschel, and MAN had produced 850 Pz.Kpfw. It was introduced during the Closed Beta Test for Ground Forces before Update 1.41 as a main tree vehicle, however, as of Update 1.91 "Night Vision" it was shifted to become a gift vehicle for players who previously owned it.. General info The highest concentration of Panthers on the Western Front was 471 Panthers (336 operational) in the Ardennes Offensive (Battle of the Bulge), where it showed its prowess in open terrain due to its superior gun. Reverse speed is much better than that of the earlier Panthers, which makes peeking out from behind cover to fire much more viable. However, it is still useful for spotting enemies and notifying teammates of their presence. Even in a close-range battle, try to maintain distance between you and the enemy tank to prevent them from easily flanking you and keep a range advantage to keep your weak points as small as possible. Heavily armoured frontal hull is immune to most guns at its battle rating, e.g. The Panther is not like the Panzer IV you have become accustomed to in the line-up. In a more close-range tactic, stay with your allies. As for armour, the Panther II's protection is the same as that of the Panther F. It can protect against most small-calibre guns, but won't hold up against larger guns such as those found on the enemy's medium and heavy tanks. Has a wide range of good-looking camouflage to unlock. Its rather poor gun handling, however (7.1°/s turret rotation on a stock tank with a level 1 crew) means close-quarters engagements and particularly urban combat should be avoided if possible. Where it remained so until 1944, where Hitler removed the V in the designation for the name Panther. The sound of the dropped casing for tanks with external extraction has been fixed (tanks like Strv 103А, Strv 103С, Strv 103-0, Lvkv 9040C, Strf 9056, Т-72A, Т-72B, T-72B3 ). The lessons from Panther II, specifically the Schmalturm turret, would be used on main Panther tank, resulting in the planned Panther F variant. The Pz.Kpfw. The Pz.Kpfw. Panther II is a rank IV German medium tank with a battle rating of 7.0 (AB) and 6.7 (RB/SB). The MAN design for the Panther featured a heavily sloped armour design, with the front glacis plate being 80 mm thick (from the original 60 mm before the weight increase) and when sloped at 55 degrees, it was 140 mm effective in thickness. For this reason, the tank's losses were very high. 200 Panthers were ready in June 1943, but its combat debut was disappointing. The Panther D was historically made to fight in a long distance with its long 75 mm KwK 42 gun. After the Ardennes Offensive, eight Panzer division with 271 Panthers were transferred to the Eastern Front to beat back the Soviet offensive. The Panther II's speed and manoeuvrability is almost as good as the Leopard 1's. All of these mocked up Panthers were destroyed in battle or scrapped after it. Project E50 was commissioned to replace both the Panther I and the Panther II. Skins and camouflages for the Panther II from live.warthunder.com. Much better frontal armour than the other Panthers. The side armour of the Panther was way thinner at 40 mm that could be pierced very easily. Daimler-Benz design for this project looks similar to the T-34 with the turret far forward in the hull, plus the use of a diesel engine and external leaf spring suspension. Side skirts are 5 mm thick and act as additional protection against explosive warhead, Part of the hull is covered by tracks, adding additional 20 mm of armour. Description. Those that did work during the campaign were able to cause heavy casualties on the Soviet tank forces, but the Panther's lethality was mitigated by its low number available. Reacting to flanking enemy's isn't that easy. 842 Panther Ausf. The curved gun mantlet design had an unfortunate tendency to ricochet deflected rounds into the roof, it was, however, not fixed until a new gun mantlet design with a flat "chin" shape was introduced on the Panther G. The Schachtellaufwerk suspension system, like the Tiger, suffered from over-engineering and complicating maintenance of the tank. The Ausf. It was widely used by U.S. Schmalturm had special mountings for infra-red device and telescopic range finder. V Ausf. Germany : Maus, Panther II, RU 251. That said, Tank Crew has scale and scope that few other tank sims have. Panther II. After examining the strengths and weaknesses of the Soviet tanks, German engineers added sloping armour and a new chassis with large rollers and wide treads to the project.
