Product Description

BB008  German Panther Ausf G - SS Leibstandarte Adolf Hitler

 

FIRST LEGION EXCLUSIVE
This tank is only available for purchase directly from First Legion, it is not being sold through dealers.
 

First Legion is extremely pleased to present the next vehicle in our “Battle of the Bulge” series, BB008 Panther Ausf G as part of the 1st SS Panzer Division.    The 1st Leibstandarte Adolf Hitler Division was broken down into 4 different Kampgruppes for the Ardennes offensive, each named after their respective commander.   The most famous of these was Kampfgruppe Peiper which contained all of the division’s tanks and was the tip of the spear of the “Wacht am Rhein” offensive.   Our tank is designed to appear as it would have looked at the outset of the offensive.  It has several features of the later Ausf G including the crew compartment heater, rain guard over the driver's vision port, flame supressing muffler, chin gun mantlet, and the debris guard over the gun mantlet. 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.       

 

The model is made from a mixed media (resin, metal, plastic, brass,  photo etch, etc...) and has the following features:
 
- Opening & Closing Commander's Cupola
- Opening & Closing Front Hatches
- Fully Rotating Turret
- Gun Raises/Lowers
- Antenna
- Extremely realistic weathering and superb sculpting and painting
