The Panther I was produced as a reaction to the tanks encountered by German forces during Operation Barbarossa. Having considered Soviet tank designs to be obsolete, German tank crews were stunned when they came up against concepts like sloped armour on the T-34.

The Panther took Soviet innovations and supersized them. Entering the battlefield from 1943 and weighing in at around 45 tonnes, this was a huge machine. It was technologically ambitious, seeking to ally armour with speed and firepower. It mounted one of the best guns of the war – the dependable 7,5 cm Kw.K 42 L/70.
