This is a comprehensive documentary about the German Panzer V Panther Tank (Panzerkampfwagen V Panther).
Serving Germany from mid-1943 to the end of World War II in 1945, the Panzer V "Panther" tanks were intended as a counter to the T-34, and to replace the Panzer IV and III, although they served along side them and other heavy tanks until the end of the war. The Panther’s excellent combination of firepower, mobility, and protection served as a benchmark for other nations’ late war and immediate post-war tank designs and it is frequently regarded (along with the Soviet T-34 Tank) as the best tank design of World War II
The documentary runs about an hour, with good quality footages and combat scenes. The audio narration is information-intensive, providing details about its development, production, units and main battles.
