Minichamps MIN350019004 4th Issue: German Late Version Sd. Kfz. 171 PzKpfw V Panther Ausf. G Medium Tank - SS Untersturmfhrer Per Kjolner, Abt/3.Kompanie, 'Herman von Saltza' Abteilung, 11.SS Panzergrenadier-Division "Nordland", Berlin, 1945 (1:35 Scale) "If the tank succeeds, then victory follows."
- Major-General Heinz Guderian, "Achtung Panzer!"

In many respects, the Panther tank was viewed as the finest armored fighting vehicle of the Second World War. Based in large part upon the Soviet's highly successful T-34 medium tank, the PzKpfw V Ausfuhrung G was built by several manufacturers including MAN, Daimler-Benz and MNH. Mounting a fearsome 7.5cm KwK42 L/70 cannon and two 7.92mm MG34 machineguns, the Panther Ausf. G represented the third and certainly the most impressive installment in the Panther series.

The weight of the production model was increased to 43 tons from the original plans for a 35 ton tank. Hitler had personally reviewed the final designs and insisted on an increase in the thickness of the frontal armor - the front glacis plate was increased from 60mm to 80mm and the turret front plate was increased from 80mm to 100mm.

Once the problems caused by the vulnerability of the engine and the transmission were solved, it proved to be a very effective fighting vehicle. The crew was made up of five members: driver, radio operator (who also fired the bow machine gun), gunner, loader, and commander.

Now Minichamps has created a gorgeous 1:35 scale diecast replica of the famed PzKpfw V Panther Ausfuhrung G (Type G) medium tank, this time around painted in a striking late-war camouflage pattern used in the defense of Berlin in 1945. This stunning recreation features a rotating turret, elevating gun, working suspension, and treads that are made of flexible metal links! Now in stock!
