Considering the aims of WG trying to place at least partly historical tanks (with historical names) in the tree, and psychological inclinations related to historical, mass produced tanks like mine (some prefer the thrill of driving a Panther, not VK-[numbers]), I have a simple renaming proposal:
1. VK 30.02 MAN on tier VI gets renamed to Panther ausf. D (the first panthers in German service, lacking ball-mount for hull machine gun, that fought in Kursk).
2. Current Panther on tier VII gets renamed to Panther ausf. G (the latest, and the most perfected Panther model in mass production in German service).
Vote please!
Commentary welcome!

I'd approve but WG likely don't care or will cite "blah technical names are more correct."

 

Still a good time to show off my 3 MoEs for them.

I would approve.
The actual Panther at tier doesnt look anything like the actual wartime Panther due to its upgraded turret.

It would also need it's lower plate buffed to 60 to have historical armor layout (ausf. D) but then again there is nothing historical about this game.

Although naming is but a minor detail, I do approve with the suggestion of the OP and Ntec5.
