Brief HistoryIn service with the German Army from 1943 to 1945. The Panther was designed as a direct reaction to the appearance of the Soviet T34 tank in 1941 and share many design features such as the well sloped armour and low turret. It was committed to action prematurely during the Battle of Kursk and initially proved to be very unreliable. Once these problems were overcome the Panther became the equal of the T34 and many consider it to be the best tank to come out of World War II. By the end of the war, an estimated 6800 Panthers had been built. Many were used by the Soviet and France after the war.
