Panther Ersatz M10: Master of Sabotage
As part of a daring sabotage operation by German special forces in the Ardennes, several Panther tanks were disguised as US M10 Wolverine SPGs. The deed was done in true German style, with attention given to even the most minor details. As a result of this ruse, even at short range the German tanks looked very much like the American SPGs. The Panthers’ command cupolas were removed along with all its outboard equipment, and the characteristic M10 turret and hull silhouette were recreated from steel plates.
The fake M10 in the German tech tree is a Panther with additional defensive applique armor and a strengthened gun mantlet. It’s an exclusive treat for participants of our Winter Marathon!
"Winter camouflage" will be given to all owners of the Panther Ersatz M10 with 350,000 lights on the tree on the main page of the site.
