July 5, 1943 was the first time Russian forces would encounter the German Panther tank during operation "Citadel". Unfortunately for Germany, more than 80% of its Panther units failed due to mechanical issues.
It didn't take long for Germany to come up with a better design for the Panther, which soon became the mainstay of German armored combat forces. In War Front: Turning Point, the Panther is a flexible unit, capable of performing multiple roles on the battlefield.
The Panther, or Panzer V, was the German response to the Russian T-34, a tank that outgunned and outmaneuvered earlier incarnations of the Panzer line. In the real World War II, it would easily have outclassed the Matilda and T-70, its two enemy equivalents in War Front.
