Light Tank: Aufklärungspanzer Panther

Aufklärungspanzer Panther

Planned heavy reconnaissance vehicle. The plans called for using the Panther hull in order to facilitate rapid mass production. The vehicle was to feature the Leopard turret with a gun not longer than the tank's hull, which was to ensure maneuverability in forested terrain. No prototypes were built.

Characteristics for a vehicle with basic configuration and a crew with 100% qualification.
