The Panther II is a Germany heavy tank. The Panther II improved the Panther I by giving it increased armor protection and adding the Tiger’s hard-hitting 88mm gun. Only one Panther II prototype was completed by war’s end. In game, this unit represents improvements to the Advanced Armor already available for development.
Availability: When Germany develops Heavy Armor and produces at least 3 Tiger IEs or other Advanced Armor.
This is a really great looking unit on the board – I like how it strikes fear into my opponents. Okay, maybe that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but I do feel like I’m going to win the game when I have a 9/8, blitzing armor on the board. Just one or two of these is enough to anchor a formation of infantry on defense or spearhead an assault.
