Update – 24/11/207
The “Awful” Panther has received a small update today on Supertest. The concept stays the same, a large lightweight tank with a comfortable gun. I’ve updated the article with the new stats and variance.
A project for a heavy reconnaissance vehicle based on the Panther tank. The use of the hull and chassis of the existing tank would have significantly facilitated the mass production of the new vehicles; a small turret would have decreased the weight and improved the manoeuvrability of the vehicle. However, the project was discontinued at a development stage.
Aufklärungspanzer might be making a return, but according to some Russian sources, it won’t be as sold as Premium vehicle but there isn’t any confirmation if this will be some sort of Reward tank.
