- Panther Light Tank
- Firepower Superiority: Panther Light Tanks are early to mid game defensive units. Armed with an 8.8cm tank gun more commonly seen on WWII main battle tanks, it devastates enemy vehicles and light tanks with ease. This can be further upgraded to a longer 8.8 for increased range and accuracy or a 10.5cm Kwk 52 L/68 main battle tank gun for greatly increased AP and damage. The latter option will enable it to engage main battle tanks as well.
- Foothold: To further augment their defensive game, Panther Light Tanks can dig in using their entrenching plow, greatly improving their armour. This can make them quite formidable defensive emplacements early on, where air support and artillery are scare.
- Duck-Footed: Unlike most Light Tanks however, Panthers are not fast and are ill-suited for flanking maneuvers. Their turrets also can only turn through 180 degrees, and cannot engage targets behind them. Air units and artillery will also make mince meat of them, and they lack the armor and health to engage main battle tanks in a head on offensive, even with the 10.5cm main gun.
