since 0.67 the panther seems not to be matching expectations at least in frontal armor terms. most variants of the panther had 80mm of frontal armor angled at 45 degrees. this should at least been roughly equal with the tigers 100mm flat armor but it isnt nearly ingame. i have been killed by a t34-76s outdated, puny gun in one shot to the front quite some times now, and this is not what i expect from a tank which is known to be one of the first, modern tanks in history! i know there have been quite some topics concerning this problem, but i had a discussion with ArminAce today on our server, and he didnt sound like there would be any changes to correct this for the upcoming version of FH. so my request to you FH admins is: PLEASE GIVE US BACK A PANTHER WHICH IS WORTH BEING CALLED PANTHER!
IIRC Major Hartmann has posted on here that the Panther has been fixed.
Well I'm not a dedicated tanker so I'm not often in a tank but I think you're being hit from a different direction because it barely does any damage from my experience. Last week I was playing orel and I was shooting at the panther D but after 4 shots to the front it wasn't even smoking.

Hartmann found a problem so yes he was not imagining it, it should be fixed on next version

Maybe it depends on the version than.
yea they really need to fix that. Its a offense to all german tank constructors (lol)
Somehow, I fail to see the humor. The Panther is, hands down, the best tank of World War II. To see this tank so fouled up by the development team is a tragedy. Even something as small as this should get a hotfix. I ask the team this:
If Charlie Sector was messed up so that the British landed there, would you not fix it? If the Bf-109 could out manuver the Hurricane, would you not fix it?
Get my point now? I sure hope you do. This mod needs one thing more than anything, even the Italians. Hotfix patches.
I'm sure if they were paided a hefty salary they would spit out updates fast. I'm sure your willing to hand them a few hundred thousand dollars so they can spit these hot fixes extremely fast. Not exactly easy pushing updates when your not making millions like say EA is making. Although the mod is 5000X better than BF1942.
:agreed Time to sell the plane, USMA.... :D (I never fail to see the humour in anything. Good way to age really fast :D) And actually, do you think EA would even care about something like this? With them, this complaint would rate an auto-generated e-mail at best. And their updates aren't any faster.
