NOR091 German Panther Ausf G Early w/Zimmerit - 3rd Co, 12th Pz Regt, 12 SS Hitler Jugend

First Legion

NOR091 German Panther Ausf G Early w/Zimmerit - 3rd Co, 12th Pz Regt, 12 SS Hitler Jugend First Legion is extremely pleased to present the next vehicle in our Battle of Normandy series, NOR091 German Panther Ausf G Early w/Zimmerit - 3rd Co, 12th Pz Regt, 12 SS Hitler Jugend. The Panther tank was certainly one of the finest tanks of the war. While considered a medium tank, its weight was more in line with many of the “heavy” tanks of the war. The Panther’s sloping armor gave it very effective frontal defense and its 75mm main gun had more penetrating power than the Tiger Tanks 88mm gun due to extremely high muzzle velocity. Along with the Tiger tank, the Panther is certainly one of the most iconic tank of the Second World War. Our version is for Normandy is very different than our version that we did for our Bulge Series in that it is an earlier version of the Ausf G. So it has features such as Zimmerit, Side Skirts, no crew compartment heater, the earlier exhaust pipes, etc. that make it an accurate model for June 1944. Please note that the tracks on the turret and the side skirts are removable further increasing display options. This is an incredible model produced in very limited numbers and is a great addition to our Battle of Normandy figures series
