FIRST LEGION/ German Tank Crew & Panther

    First Legion is extremely pleased to present the next vehicle in our Battle of Normandy series, NOR091 German Panther Ausf G Early w/Zimmerit - 3rd Co, 12th Pz Regt, 12 SS Hitler Jugend. The Panther tank was certainly one of the finest tanks of the war. While considered a medium tank, its weight was more in line with many of the “heavy” tanks of the war. The Panther’s sloping armor gave it very effective frontal defense and its 75mm main gun had more penetrating power than the Tiger Tanks 88mm gun due to extremely high muzzle velocity. Along with the Tiger tank, the Panther is certainly one of the most iconic tank of the Second World War. Our version for Normandy is very different than our version that we did for our Bulge Series in that it is an earlier version of the Ausf G. So it has features such as Zimmerit, Side Skirts (removable), no crew compartment heater, the earlier exhaust pipes, etc. that make it an accurate model for June 1944. Please note that the tracks on the turret, jerry cans, and the side skirts are removable further increasing display options. This is an incredible model produced in very limited numbers and is a great addition to our Battle of Normandy figures series!

    To complement this model we also have a new German Tank Crew, set TC012. While we show this two figure crew set here with our Panther, it works with the vast majority of vehicles that we have done including the Wirbelwind as shown below. We haven't tested it with every vehicle, but it's a very flexible set that will work with most tanks and future tanks as well.

    Unfortunately although the figures are nice, as they are wearing Wehrmacht uniforms they can’t be combined with your 12 SS Panther as Waffen SS uniforms were of a different cut than the Wehrmacht uniforms.
