The Panther:

was a panzer fielded by Germany in WWII that served from mid-1943 to the end of the European war in 1945. It was designed as a counter to the Red Army T-34, and to replace the Panzerkampfwagen III and IV, though it served along with them as well as the heavier PzKpfw VI until the end of the war. The Panther’s very excellent combination of firepower, mobility, and shielding served as a benchmark for other nations’ late war and immediate post-war panzer designs and it is frequently regarded as one of the best tank designs of World War II. Until 1944, it was designated as the PzKpfw V Panther and had the ordnance inventory designation of Sd.Kfz. 171. On 27, February 1944, Hitler ordered that the Roman numeral V be deleted from the designation. The Panzerkanpfwagen V was a direct response to the Red Army T-34 and KV-1 tanks. First encountered on 23 June, 1941, the T-34 outclassed the existing Panzer III and IV. At the insistence of General Heinz Guderian, a special Panzerkommision was dispatched to the Eastern Front to assess the Red Army tanks. Among the features of the Soviet tank considered most significant were the sloping armor, which gave much enhanced shot deflection and also increased the effective armor thickness against penetration, the wide track, which improved mobility over soft earth, and the 76.2 mm gun, which had good armor penetration and fired an effective high-explosive round. Daimler-Benz (DB) and Maschinenfabrik Augsburg-Nürnberg AG (MAN) were given the task of designing a new thirty to thirty-five-ton tank, designated VK30.02, by April 1942 . The  model was a direct homage to the Red Army T-34. It resembled the T-34 hull and turret form. DB’s design used a leaf spring suspension whereas the T-34 originally used coil springs. The DB turret was smaller than that of the MAN design and had a smaller turret ring which was the result of the narrower hull required by the leaf spring suspension. The main advantages of the leaf springs over a torsion bar suspension were a lower hull silhouette and a simpler shock dampening design. Like the T34, the DB design had a rear drive sprocket. Unlike the Red Army T-34, the DB design had a three-man turret crew: commander, gunner, and loader. But as the planned L/70 75mm gun was much longer and heavier than the T-34’s, mounting it in the Daimler-Benz turret was difficult. Plans to reduce the turret crew to two men to stem this problem were eventually dropped. The MAN design had more conventional German ideals with the transmission and drive sprocket in the front and a turret placed centrally in reference to the hull. It had a petrol based engine and eight torsion-bar suspension axles on each side. Due to the torsion bar suspension, the MAN Panzerkanpfwagen V was higher and had a wider hull than the DB model. The slightly earlier, Henschel designed Panzerkampfwagen VI heavy tank’s use of a “slack track” Christie style pattern of large road wheels without return rollers for the upper run of track, and with the main road wheels being overlapping and interleaved in layout, were design concepts broadly imitated with the MAN plan for the PzKpfw V. The two designs were reviewed over a period from January 1942 to March 1942. Reichminister Todt, and later, his replacement Albert Speer, both recommended the DB plan to Hitler because of its several advantages over the first MAN Panzerkanpfwagen V design. However, at the final submission, MAN improved their Panther design, having learned from the DB proposal, and a review by a special commission appointed by Hitler in May 1942 ended up selecting the MAN plan. He then approved this decision after reviewing it overnight. One of the principal reasons given for this decision was that the MAN model used an existing turret designed by Rheinmetall-Borsig while the DB design would have required a brand new turret to be designed and produced, substantially delaying the commencement of production. The MAN Panzer plan also had better ability to handle water hazards, easier gun maintenance and higher mobility due to better suspension, wider tracks, and a larger fuel tank.  A mild steel prototype Panzer was manufacturedby September 1942 and, after testing at , was accepted. It was put into immediate production. The start of manufacturing was delayed, however, mainly because there were too few specialized machine tools needed for the machining of the hull. Finished PzKpfw tanks were manufactured in December and suffered from reliability issues as a result of this production haste. The demand for this tank was so high that the manufacturing was soon expanded beyond MAN to include Daimler-Benz, Maschinenfabrik Niedersachsen-Hannover (MNH) and Henschel and Sohn in Kassel. The first panzer tank manufacturing target was 250 per month at MAN. This was increased to 600 per month in January 1943. Despite determined efforts, this figure was never reached due to disruption by Allied bombing, manufacturing bottlenecks, and other difficulties. Panzerkanpfwagen V tank production in 1943 averaged 148 per month. In 1944, it averaged 315 a month (3,777 having been built that year), peaking with 380 in July and ending around the end of March 1945, with at least 6,000 manufactured in total.
