World of Tanks Panther/M10 - 7 Kills 5,5K Damage
Medals received: High Caliber, Top Gun
The Panther/M10 is a German tier 7 premium medium tank.
During the preparation of Otto Skorzeny's Panzerbrigade 150 for the Ardennes offensive, four Panther tanks were disguised as M10 tank destroyers. The tank brigade was to carry out diversions deep behind the allied lines. All vehicles were lost during the battle with the 120th U.S. Infantry Regiment on February 21, 1945.
The Panther/M10 is more or less identical to a historical Panther G tank, featuring the well-known long 75 L70. Like the Panther, the Panther/M10 is a medium tank with somewhat mediocre mobility and firepower. Armor is arguably above-average for a medium tank, but is generally not reliable.
At a glance, it seems somewhat lackluster even for a T7 medium tank. However, the Panther/M10 features limited matchmaking - which from 9.18 onwards means it, at worst, will see five T8s. Generally expect single-tier T7 and 5+10 T7+T6 battles. Furthermore, like the normal Panther, it features a huge hitpoint pool of 1300, equivalent to many T8 medium tanks. Gun-wise, using the same one as T6 medium tanks (or even T5 TDs) might not seem too good. DPM is not much better than e.g. a VK3001D, but it gets far better gun handling - better than a Comet equipped with a vertical stabilizer. This, combined with the HP pool, makes it a formidable opponent on the battlefield. Medium-long range combat is recommended, conserving the HP pool for the mid-late game.
This tank was removed from sale in the gift shop and to buy for gold via the in game tech tree on the 4/5/15 with the release of 9.7 Premium Tanks: Removal from Sales as part of the WG retirement plan. It returned to the gift shop and in-game tech tree in 9.17.1 along with the buffs to the tank (improving top speed and gun handling).
Currently this tank is available as one of the reward vehicles for completing the Referral Program 2.0 campaign as a recruit.
