German tank "Panther" in the Museum of the Park "Patriot": history, characteristics and maintainability

12

Panzerkampfwagen V Panther - the famous Wehrmacht tank, "Panther". The peculiarity of creating this tank for the Nazi troops is that it (the tank) was positioned as a response to the presence of the T-34 in the Red Army. By and large, in Nazi Germany it was perceived precisely as the destroyer of Soviet "thirty-fours" - in the version of a medium tank weighing about 44-45 tons. In the domestic classification "Panther" can be classified as heavy.


On the territory of our country, this tank, released at one time in Germany for military operations against the Soviet Union, can be seen in the Patriot park near Moscow.

The dimensions of the German armored vehicle are impressive. These dimensions can be explained, among other things, by the fact that it was necessary to comfortably accommodate a crew of five people in the tank (as this concept was perceived during the war years), and in addition to place an impressive ammunition load.

An expert specializing in the repair and restoration of equipment from the times of the Great Patriotic War, note that all the talk about problems with the chassis of the "Panther", including stories with lumps of frozen mud and jammed rollers due to stones - to a large extent can be attributed to how the tank was operated and maintained by the crew.

The presented video from Tactic Media on Dmitry Puchkov's channel tells about the Panther, how the tank ended up in a museum near Moscow, and the characteristics and maintainability of a German tank. Information about the tank is provided by expert Evgeny Moskalev, with whom Mikhail Timin spoke.

    In 1950, tests were carried out in Sweden for the patency of tanks and the main attention in this test drive was given to the "Panther" and "Sherman".
    On YouTube there is a video about these tests - "Panther vs. Sherman."

    It is a pity that there is no text version of the article. I never watch videos. For a long time.

    Looked . As always, everything is fine in the videos. Except for another video
    on the recovery in Poland of the "Panther" drowned in the river and blown up by the crew.
    There has recently been a topic about Pz-V without tracks and its evacuation from the basement
    there was a German pensioner. Apparently, the author of the article has "deja vu".
    Or Groundhog Day is premature.

    Good machine. Well, the Germans could not pull out its serial production at the level of our T-34s.

    A dangerous and well-armored vehicle. It's so good that the Germans were not able to arrange their mass production. And what courage our tankers had when they fought such monsters! She still has a monstrous cannon.

    From the engineering point of view, it is a masterpiece, but it is not suitable for a mass of war. ... Too expensive.
    I would like a video about the T-44, They were released more than one hundred, But not a single monument to him. I didn't have time to fight. Although this tank is an era between the T-34 and T-55. And few people know about him. And about the T-10, and even more so, although in the center of the city we have it. 49 tons of live weight. Forever in flowers from the newlyweds. True, the stars on the tower dill covered up.

      The T-44, created as a continuation of the T-34 and a response to the Panther and Tiger, surpassed the Panther in basic parameters.

      The Germans did not think so. And the Americans spoke very well of the Panther.

      T-44, Hundreds of them were released, But there is not a single monument to him.

      And what are the monuments for? BTT was so-so. Much below the average for those years.

    Yes, what are you.
    The Panther was a tank, not an anti-tank weapon.
    With the T-34, the Germans coped well with other forces and means, which they had enough.
