Strangely for it's reputation it was a "medium" tank. Prone to engine trouble that was never sorted satisfactorily
Underarmoured and undergunned against the German tanks but so many made they just kept moving forward
A British 17 pounder gun replaced the base model 70mm and made this tank a match for the Germans
Ideally suited to Russian conditions, wide tracks, well armoured. Possibly the best tank of the war.
Designed initially as an assault tank it was used as a mobile fortress on the Russian front to stem the Russian hordes !!
As the Panther, plagued by mechanical breakdowns but an iconic machine
