The Panther Tank

Recommended Posts

Did not know that.  It looks similar to stereoscopic rangefinders,   I thought that was the whole purpose of spreading out the 2 optics to get a more precise range by using the distance between the 2 lenses to determine the range.

BTW, there will not be any Panther missions in the campaign as they didn't take part in the Prokhorovka battle. There will be Pz III, IV and VI only.

Panther path is blue, campaign's area is green:

 

I’m extremely disappointed... at the Heer and Waffen-SS, for not putting any Panthers near Prokhorovka.

 

I mean, I can’t really criticise the devs for being historically accurate in a simulator game, can I?

With two lenses you have way more awareness of space and distance, because we humans are built do operate with two eyes, not with one. That helps when trying to estimate ranges. 

The reason why both the early Panther and Tiger had stereoscopic sights for their gunners is exactly that.

 

OK, my bad, these optics were used exactly the way you described. At least the German wikipedia states that.

For dedicated rangefinders I was expecting something like the devices the flak used.

But apparently a Scherenfernrohr is all you need. It may be not as accurate but it will get the job done.

Both campaigns are almost ready for release, we finish localization now, but Panther is not here yet and I don't know when it be ready...

Sure, you're right.

IF the trend of making the tanks goes on: the panther will be able to hit speeds up and beyond 60 kmh 😄
So looking forward to the panther 😄

Not without destroying its transmission it won't.

Also Normandy with an Operation Goodwood setting would do the trick involving schwere Panzerabteilung 503 with a mixture of Tiger Is and Tiger IIs and of course another unit with Panther As and Gs. Fireflys is a given but we also would see Cromwells, Churchills, Sherman IIIs, PzIV Hs and Js and Panzerjaeger IVs.

No, high speed is not the problem. Sudden sharp turns in third gear are (leads to final drive breakage). Or the fact that the HL230 tends to selfdistruct with RPMs over 3000.
