Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

At the end of 1944 Daimler-Benz was working on a new version of the Panther, the F version.
It had a few modifications.

- New turret ( smaller)
- Thicker turret armor
- New rangefinder device
- Mg34  to be replaced by MG 42
- Modifications to add infrared device
- The barrel on the new turret didnt have a muzzleflashbrake.

Allthough the changes made in the design were promising it never got to production.
Some of the modifications were built in the G version, like the infrared device.

Two pictures of the F version with the new turret.
