Hello tankers!
First off for moving this topic from place to place, couldn't find anywhere where it would fit until now.
It's the 1st again and we have a new Tank of the Month to show off to everyone. In August we have enriched our database with vehicles such as the DUKW, the Armstrong-Withworth model 1913, the 40M/41M Turán, the Type 2 Ka-Mi and the A13 Cruiser Mk. III. Even more, the M3 Stuart and the whole WWI section received a nice touch up and many improvements. The cherry on top was of course the second part of the M4 Sherman article.
This month we have another legend, the Pz.Kpfw. V Panther. Worldwide known, the Panther was a new generation medium tank, trying to reach the "impossible triangle" of maneuverability, armor and firepower. Although it originally faced many teething problems, most of these were sorted out, and the Panther became the powerful war machine we know today. It was the 3rd most produced German tank of the war. The article features 53 illustrations, information about its background, design, operational history and derivatives. The latter include the E-50, Panther II and the Jagdpanther.
Enjoy your stay with us and good hunting!

The Renault D2 was an interwar French tank, designed to be a heavier version of the D1. In most respects it was an enlarged version of the latter. The 100 built were divided into two versions, the model 1935 with a short 47 mm gun and APX-1 turret, and the model 1938, with the APX-4 turret and a longer 47 mm gun. Most of them were in poor shape when the Germans attacked, but fought nonetheless. Most were lost due to breakdowns.
