At the beginning of WWII, German tanks were defeated by Russian T-34 medium tanks and in order to counter them, Germany created the Panther V and were deployed to frontlines in 1943. It featured excellent defensive abilities, had sloped armor plates, powered by a 700ps Maybach HL230P30 4-stroke V12 gasoline engine which provided them with a top speed of 55km/h. It was armed with a 70 caliber 7.5cm long-barreled tank gun which was as powerful as the Tiger I’s 8.8cm gun. Evolved from the Type D and A, the Panther Type G was put into production from March 1944. Later in 1944, the Type G received more extensive modifications which included an angle-bottomed gun mantlet, exhausts with flame dampers, and heater units on top of the engine grilles. Overall 2,953 Panther Gs were produced until the final factory was captured by Allied forces in April 1945. The Panther G went on to serve as Germany's main battle tank until the end of the war.
