The Sd.Kfz. 171 Panzer V Panther was the German answer to the Russian T-34 on which it was inspired. Considered by many as the best German tank of World War II, it was a medium tank although quite heavy (almost 45 tons), maneuverable and wide-tracked, very well armored, and better armed with a powerful 7.5 cm L/70 KwK 42 gun. The Ausf.A corresponds to the second version that represented a notable improvement over the initial Ausf.D version, especially in terms of engine and transmission failures. About 2,200 units were built between mid-1943 and mid-1944.
