'Panther' was the common name of a medium tank fielded by Nazi Germany during the Second World War, serving from the middle of 1943 up until the end of the war. It was built as a counter to the formidable Soviet T-34 tank, and it's excellent combination of firepower, mobility, and protection served as a benchmark for tank design during the latter stages of the war (many people regard the Panther as one of the best tank designs of the entire war)
