It's a POS.

 

I hate this tank. 

 

Average mobility, average armour, don't get me started on the absolutely dismal alpha of the gun.

 

Can't brawl, can get embarrassed carouseling TD's. Got for absolutely nothing but sniping scrubs who sit there for long enough for you to dpm them.

 

Useless tank.

That's because...Well you don't know how to play tank, its not a brawler tank, its a sniper tank.

 

And has a quick ROF with a high pen, low alpha gun.


 

Short story, this is a Learn to play issue, not a tank issue, don't play the panther like some brawler tank, its is a SNIPER TANK, with a high rate of fire, and a high pen gun, use that to your advantage.

Its actually a solid tank, I had a good time going through it all the way to the Panther II. Gave up on the line to pursue the secondary German medium line exclusively. I don't hate it at all.

Panther M10 can brawl with less pen, I think you're just bad at balanced tanks OP

:bush:Did you play the vk 30-2(m)?:hiding: I did it, its a great tank which is fast good gun for its tier. I have now moved onto the panther. Yes once again like all stock tanks in sucks . I have moved up its tech tree have better speed ,gun , binoculars fitted and tank rammer. Shoot move shoot move shoot etc just like I did in its little brother. The only difference is the enemy is bigger and slower and camp a lot more. 

 

Use it's speed and chip away like a annoying wasp.

oh tat reminds me, funny story in the Vk 30-1(m), there was a T-44...and I was all like "Damn" he was shotting at another tank and he was showing his side, I shot his side, and since the reload time is very fast, I ended up killing him him after about eh.. a minute, I was all like "FUK YAAAAAAA" ....maybe he should of killed me first :P

The M is better for its tier I think. The 135 alpha is more for your money at a tier lower.

Saying the panther has average mobility is pretty funny to me. Ever since it got its buff, it is likely the MOST maneuverable of the tier vii mediums. Combined with the best armor and gun at it's tier make this probably the best tier vii medium

lol at your review



something, something, something, dark side...

Well I got embarrassed trying to circle a T25 AT one time so I guess mobility is relative.

Even before the buff, it compared favorably to many contemporaries. For example, it's faster than the Comet, with a better gun and more trollish armor if done right. If you're brawling with it of course, you better be fighting a light tank. But as a sniper, flanker, and pseudo scout, it's more than adequate. I personally liked the T20 a little better thanks to the nice 90mm, but the Panther's a close second. The oft-cited problems are endemic to almost all tier 7 and 8 mediums in general, so you can't blame the individual tank.

It's a sniper, definitely not meant to be a brawler at all.

I'd take the Comet any day due to the gun depression.

 

I take your point about all mediums at these tiers having issues.

i actually think the panther is the equal of the tier 7 heavies. It really is an excellent tank

I had alot of fun in this tank. With the top gun and in the same tier I could pen almost everything frontally. It is a sniper but ss in this tank was easy! Angling the front bounced alot too. I was surprised affter reading the reviews how effective ss and angling were in this tank. 

 

If you stay back and snipe and dont aim for the fronts of tanks this tank is good in my opinion.

I had fun in the Panther.  It is a surgical sniper.  It can flank on bigger maps.  The top gun is accurate with low alpha, but good ROF.  I am currently grinding the Panther II, which plays exactly like the Panther, but with an even better gun and a bit more armor.  It's fun to snipe the OPFOR Heavy campers from the flanks as your team Heavies push forward.
