Pantiger, Some Historic Perspective  Pantig10



http://www.taigentanks.com/Panther.html


A Can Am legend, operated by Captain Action, (who is himself, a Can Am legend) Wink


Sigmund (Ziggy) Porsche was a nephew of Ferdinand.

Ziggy was too fond of the Biergarten and other questionable pastimes, resulting in him flunking out of Berlin Poly-technique in 1938.

The family pressured Ferdinand to keep his errant nephew out of trouble and gainfully employed, much to Ferdinand's resentment.

Ferdinand banished young Ziggy to an obscure back office in the company facility at Stuttgart.

Over the years, several impractical designs resulted, while Ziggy grew jealous of his uncle's fame and success.


Ziggy eventually got to see prototypes of the Tiger I and Panther.

Seeing a chance to grab some fame and success, he applied himself like never before, even giving up his trips to the biergartens (at least one went out of business).

Ziggy shamelessly copied design features of both tanks, since he was used to copying others work as a student at Berlin Poly-technique.


The result was a combination of both, a "Pantiger"


Ziggy used his family influence to get some built.


When Hitler was shown mere drawings of the Pantiger, he flew into an extreme rage, very bad, even for him. He said he could not have anything that looked like that in the Panzer Divisions, or something like that, punctuated with inarticulate screams, while foaming at the mouth.


It was serious enough that no one wanted to mention some actually existed Shocked Shocked


So they were quickly loaded on a train, heavily covered with netting and shipped east in time for Kursk. (Capatain Action needs to re-paint his, the Pantigers at Kursk where grey with yellow over-spray patches, not three colour camo).

They performed fairly well at Kursk but after the initial reception to just seeing the drawings of them, they were kept obscured.


A later episode.

The little known German Civil War of 1944.

Shortages in the spring of 1944 caused the Pantigers to be shipped to southern Russia.

Someone didn't get the message about keeping the the Pantigers existence obscured because some correspondents and photographers from Signal magazine were there to take pictures.

The Pantigers were issued to a group of veterans.

Most of these men had endured so much and were good soldiers.

However, they were asked to pose for some pictures "for the folks" back home.

The idea of them being in a magazine article with tanks that looked like that was too much and they cracked and went rogue, going after Soviet and Axis units alike until they were taken out by Tiger I's of Abt. 506...............................and that's what we will re-enact in the 2013 season Twisted Evil Wink Laughing Laughing

I heard they made their debut on June 15th, 1943 involving some secret operation prior to Kursk.
The details of the mission are still consider top secret.

The day is still celebrated in small Russian town as "International Pan-Tiger Day".

When I ordered my first HL tanks one was a Panther G . As I found out later it was a " ziggy " Pan-Tiger. Subsequently I ordered a custom Tiagen Panther G from Nitro and got a very nice Pan-Tiger.

What if I cut the front to add the proper slope ,would that make it a Panther G or should I just sell it and try again for the real thing?
