Panzerkampfwagen V Panther
Also known as: PzKpfw V, Panzer V, Panther, Sd. Kfz. 171
The Panther was a medium tank of the German Army in World War II. Until 1944 it was designated as the PzKpfw V Panther. The production Panther was a direct response to the Soviet T-34, and the winner of a competition that pitted a clone of the T-34 built by Daimler-Benz against one that only copied most of its key features.
Panther Ausf. D = first production version, armed with 75 mm KwK 42 L70 gun
Panther Ausf. A = second production version, improved Ausf. D
Panther Ausf. G = additional armour.
Models have 2 camos - summer and winter.
The Panther is a medium sized tank that was deployed on the Eastern and the Western fronts by the European army during World War II. It was built to stand against the Soviet T-34 and to replace the Panzer III and Panzer IV. It served alongside the Panzer IV and the heavier Tiger I until the end of the war.
It had the same engine as the Tiger I but with more efficient frontal hull armour. It had a better gun pentration and was lighter and faster. The Panther was much cheaper to produce than a Tiger I but slightly more expensive than the Panzer IV.
Although it was classified as a medium tank, but it’s weight was that of a big tank. It weighed somewhere around 44.8 tons.
The Panther came out of a project started in 1938 to replace the Panzer III and Panzer IV tanks. The weight of the production model was increased from 35-tonnes to 45-tonnes keeping the original plans aside.
The first 250 Panthers were powered by a Maybach HL 210 P30 V-12 petrol engine, which delivered 650 metric hp at 3,000 rpm and had three simple air filters.
To keep the massive war hero alive, FlatPyramid has developed a 3-D model of the WW2 Pz V Panther SdKfz 171 Ausf. G. The model can be used in difficult architectural visualizations, animations, movies and games. This is a high resolution model with clearly visible detailing. We hope that you like and admire our product.
