The Panther was one of the Wehrmacht's deadliest tanks of World War 2.

This title is part 5 in the series that is chronicling the development and modification of the Panzer V family.

Panther Volume V

This title continues the coverage of the Bergepanther and the Panther Ausf A. As with all of the books in this series, there is a ton of three-view drawings illustrating the different variations of each subject as well as numerous black & white and color photographs of the vehicles.

This title is a must-have for the German WW2 armor historian as well as the Wehrmacht modeler. This title as well as the others in this series are available from many hobby shops or directly from the North American distributor - Air Connection (
