Dragon Models 1:72 Armor Collector Series 60547
MAN Sd.Kfz.171 Panther Display Model
German Army PzDiv Munchenberg, Berlin, Germany, 1945

1:72 Scale   Length   Width
MAN Sd.Kfz.171 Panther   3.75"   2"

This model represents a tank from Pz.Div. Müncheberg fighting in Berlin as the Third Reich collapsed in flames. This division had been formed on 8 March 1945, and despite being an ad hoc formation, it employed modern armored vehicles such as the Panther. Pz.Div. Müncheberg was eventually encircled in the German capital and it disintegrated under heavy Soviet attack. The tank is finished in a late-war camouflage scheme that has been beautifully airbrushed by skilled craftsmen. In keeping with this period, there is a paucity of tactical markings on the vehicle. It has also received a judicious amount of weathering to enhance its appearance. This model has been accurately reproduced, and it represents something different thanks to its steel road wheels.

MAN Sd.Kfz.171 Panther

Designed to replace to the PzKpfw IV, which had met its match in the new Soviet T-34, the Panzerkampfwagen V "Panther" series of heavy tanks were armed with powerful weapons and equally powerful armor protection. Thought by many to be the best German tank of WWII, the Panther featured a sloped armored turret with a long barrel 75mm main gun and an anti-aircraft 7.92mm machine gun. It was equipped with anti-magnetic paste to combat magnetic mines, and armor skirts offered further protection for the track system and crew. Approximately 5,500 Panthers were built during WWII.
