Originally available as part of the game's Medium Pre-Order Package. It is identical in all ways to the Pz.Kpfw. V/IV Alpha but with no Greek Alpha symbol. It's based on a Pz.Kpfw. V Panther hull with the stock turret from the Pz.Kpfw. IV. Many players think it's similar to a buffed Pz.Kpfw. III/IV.
It has great mobility, decent acceleration and is well armored for its tier. Its weakness, however, is that it has very little gun depression, so in hilly terrain it's at a large disadvantage because even a small bump can make a big difference in its ability to hit the target or not. As a result, it's best to fight on flat ground, though some very small tanks are still difficult to hit, even on flat terrain.
Additionally, the gun is considered sub-par for its tier, so it's recommended to always flank and target the enemy's rear and side, or to resort to HE shells. Due to the small caliber gun though, even HE shells need to hit weak spots to have any meaningful effect. Presently this vehicle is only available for purchase on the RU server.
Pros and Cons
- Great mobility, while not in full speed.
- Decent acceleration.
- Well armored front for its tier, very sloped armor.
- Gun has quite high RoF.
- Can serve as a decent ramming tank due to its substantial speed and weight.
- Extremely little/low gun depression.
- Gun is under tiered and HE ammo is advised, though still mostly ineffective.
To be effective,use his tank as a flanker. Use its speed, maneuverability, and turret traverse to circle stray enemies. Attack the enemy from the sides and rear. If possible, try to time your flanking attempts to occur while your target is busy fighting one of your allies. Neither the armor nor the gun is strong enough to engage in most prolonged face-to-face battles. This tank is best positioned in a wolf pack with other mediums. It is good in hull down positions if you can place yourself behind hard cover - on flat ground - due to elevation limits on the gun. In close combat players, should try to track the enemy and then go for weakspots behind the enemy tank.
For further information on the development of the Panther, please read about the Panther.An early model Bergepanther fitted with a bolted on PzKpfw IV Ausf H’s turret (that could not be traversed), served as a command tank of Schwere Heeres Panzerjager Abteilung 653 on the Eastern Front in early-/mid-1944.
