Built by the firm of Bussing-NAG, these sturdy and reliable vehicles were gradually up-armed and served in the infantry support rol...

While some were used by the Western Allies, the Russians used the greatest number of captured Panthers against Nazi Germany, though they did not find much favour thanks to thei...
