The Panther V at the Overloon Warmuseum is getting some TLC. Its not finished yet, but they dragged it outside for this years Millitrack festival. Millitracks 2013 included 73 rideable German WW2 vehicles, including the Hetzer TD.

This is what it looked like in 1944 after being hit by a PIAT on Friday 13 Oct. It was left behind on the Overloon battlefield and one of the first items in the Overloon war museum, founded in 1946:

Because the T34 broke down they pulled out the Leopard 1A2 to replace it.

And here is the video of the Leopard 1A2 driving yesterday

That Panther looks horrible. Is it really same Panther as i saw a few years back inside? I mean that one with zimmerit ant three tone ambush camo? Otherwise Overloon is great museum with perfectly renovated military vehicles.I like their collection of engineer and support vehicles

Thats the same. They removed the zimmerit because they are restoring it to its original version as it was found in Overloon. See the original photo in the first post.

Why do you call it Panther V? It was designated as the Panzerkampfwagen V Panther!

Overloon you say? I've been there in October and I haven't seen that Panther.

But I have seen another Panther standing inside the museum, it must be a different one then.

It had like a brown, green yellow camo scheme, I can't find the picture at the moment.

That is the same Panther, there has only been one Panther-G at Overloon and it has gone through a number of guises, including a Dunkel Gelb and Chokolade Braun camo.
The way it looked with the Zimmerit was dreadful, horrible. The "Zimmerit" had been applied with what can only be a roller, the texture was awful and the pattern short of laughable. Around the MG Kugelblende it was applied in a circular pattern. Other strange decisions were to cut the read lower corner of the Schürzen, paint the exhaust shields black, use some kind of hard rubber piece as the MG-Stopfen and most inacurrate, a Hinterhalt camo-scheme AND Zimmerit together.

I hope the Panther will be given it's due tender care this time!
