|Tank Machine Gun - Panther|
Heavy machine gun
The Tank Machine Gun - Panther is a heavy machine gun mounted on the German Panzer V Panther medium tank.
The machine gun is similar to that mounted on the Panzer VI Tiger, as it is the same caliber and has the same magazine capacity, but has an improved optical sight and range, and a higher rate of fire. The weapon is mounted on the front of the Panther, making it ineffective against infantry approaching the sides or rear of the tank.
- The Panther's machine gun is the same as that of the machine guns on other German tanks.
- The machine on the Panther is actually the MG 34, an older version of the MG 42.
