Strategy[edit | edit source]

The Panzer V "Panther" is a menacing machine. The Panther can reach speeds up to 55 km/h on flat roads. It turns quickly and sharp while in speed, but becomes more cumbersome when reversing. The green and yellow paint scheme blends in with the environment fairly well, but it is a large and tall tank which makes it easy to spot out in the open.

The Panther's long high velocity 75 mm KwK 42 gun outperforms the Tiger's 88 mm and the Firefly's 17 Pounder. Its main gun reloads fast and the turret spins quickly unlike the Tiger Tank.

The Panther has thick sloped frontal armor and a big armored gun mantlet which does a great job deflecting tank rounds. It's a tough tank to defeat in a front-to-front engagement.

However you should avoid exposing its side armor, which houses three ammo-racks on the left upper hull, two on the right upper, that even the smallest tank guns can penetrate with one hit and kill the tank instantly. It's by far the easiest tank to "one hit kill" in Post Scriptum.
