    I'm working on my panthers, now in detail drawings the grates look the same but in the A the grate is narrowed but in other drawings the same as the others. In pics too but seen them on Gs as well. Is this a manufacturer deviation and what manufacturer was it. Just confusing want to be accurate on what engine deck I'm using. Any information appreciated.

    ..here are some War Thunder pics...it's free...just sign up...and you can look at many tanks...you might have to research the tanks first, before you can view them in 3D
    ..don't forget to zoom in...looks like War Thunder added some realistic, small wear and tear details!
    ..I used to play the Panther D, but I upgraded to the IS-6..Panther turret rotation very slow
    ..I don't know if this helps, but here you go: 20210618123049_1.jpg 20210618122933_1.jpg 20210618122933_1.jpg 20210618123100_1.jpg n

    Japanese publication

    AFV Modelling guide Vol.3. Panther.
    Only the chapter titles are in english, rest is in Japanese.

    The photos are mostly of the Panther A that used to be at Aberdeen.
