Panther Ausf. D Medium Tank

Dragon Strikes Back

DRR60683

Just when we were again giving up hope that we would ever see their long-promised Panther D medium tank comes news that a second version is already in the hopper. While the first version replicated an early model Type D Panther (DRA60596), their latest announcement depicts a later version (DRR60683), complete with its letterbox hatch opening for the glacis machine gun, pistol ports on the turret sides and a drum cupola.

DRA60596

Both are listed as February roll outs, and you can bet your bottom dollar that other schemes and liveries are no doubt in the works. Keep your fingers crossed they don’t run into any partisans, thereby delaying them any further.

Dragon’s 1:72 Panther Ausf. D Medium Tank is Back in the Fight

DRA60596

Announced some time ago, it appears as if Dragon’s 1:72 Panther Ausf. D medium tank is back on the shipping schedule, with a tentative release date of October. On a personal note, this particular vehicle is of interest to me, since it could very well be similar to the mount of our distant cousin Jurgen Dultz, a panzer ace and Oberleutnant with the Grossdeutschland Division, who was a winner of the PKA II. Stufe “25”.
