Panzerbeobachtungswagen Panther (Observation tank)

Pz.Beob.Wg V

 

An observation vehicle based on the Panther Ausf D was developed for the artillery. The turret was equipped with a dummy weapon instead of the 7.5 cm KwK and a machinegun in a ball mount.
Therefore required fire-control optics were installed:


1 E-Messer (1,32 m)

2 Turmbeobachtungsfernrohre TBF 2 (1x for replacement), centered on the turret roof

2 Kdt-Beobachtungsgeräte TSR 1 (in front of the commanders cupola)

1 Scherenfernrohr (in front of the commanders cupola)



Application was made, according to Spielberger only tentatively.

This development was abandoned in favour of the main battle tank production.
