PzKpfw V Panther ausf. G Steel Wheel Version
Plastic model kit.
Manufacturer: Hasegawa Models
The German Panther tank was designed in response to the appearance of the Russian T-34 which seriously challenged the existing German tanks. Like the T-34, the Panther had a long barrelled L/70 70 mm gun, large road wheels, and sloped armor for better protection. This version had the late style steel road wheels designed to reduce the need for rubber which was in short supply.
