Panther Ausf A WWII German Medium Tank Miniature Warlord Games WGB-WM-141
The dreaded Panther was developed in 1943 in time for the cataclysmic tank battle at Kursk, where Russian tanks and German Panzers fought the largest tank battle of all time.
Low and fast, the Panther also had a deadly 75mm gun which could take on any Allied tank of the war. Its armor was well sloped so incoming rounds often ricocheted off its thick steel, leaving a number of Allied tankers with a 'Panther panic'.
Although its performance on the field of battle was fearsome, it was slow and expensive to build, with early marks suffering from teething troubles. Later marks, such as the Ausf. G, were plagued by poor quality steel and shortage of parts.
To keep magnetic anti-tank mines from being clamped on to the armor the Germans covered many tanks with a paste called zimmerit which gives this model its textured appearance.
This box contains 1 resin and metal 28mm scale tank with a metal tank commander.
Model comes unpainted. Some assembly may be required. Glue, paints, and supplies sold separately.
