The Panther II tank was a German tank design proposal, based on the Panther tank during the Second World War. It had slightly thicker armour when compared with the Panther and some standardised components were implemented from the Tiger II tank. The Panther II did not progress beyond prototypes and did not enter production. This upgrade to the Panther tank increased the thickness of the glacis plate from 80 mm to 100 mm, the side hull armour from 40 mm to 60 mm, and decreased the armour on the top hull from 40 mm to 30 mm. Production of the Panther II was slated to begin in September 1943. Much of the Panther II's design was taken from the Tiger tank. The Panther II was to be fitted with a new turret, the Turm Panther 2.
