The 49-ton Panzerkampfwagen V Panther was a German medium tank employed during WWII from mid-1943 to 1945. It was intended to replace the Panzer III and Panzer IV, and counter the Soviets' T-34s. It's considered by far the best general-purpose tank of the war, and it has an exceptionally high power to weight ratio, making it fast and mobile for its size. It is equipped with a 75 mm antitank main gun and two MG34s, one turret-mounted and one bow-mounted. Compared to the Panzer IV, its 75mm gun has a higher velocity and significantly improved armor piercing capabilities. The vehicle has a length of 220.5 ½ feet, a width of 11 feet, a height of 10 feet, and a crew of five: A commander, radio operator who also serves as a secondary machine gunner, a main gunner, loader, and driver. The tank has an operational range of 120 miles
