    Seen a photo of a Panther holed through the mantlet? If so, by what caliber? Can the pic be posted, or referenced?

    The Panther photo from this site
    http://www.battlefield.ru/destroyed/...panther_09.jpg
    shows what is claimed to be 2 hits through the mantle from a SU 100

    This is collective of photos which shows a tank battle between a Panther and some US tanks.

    The Panther KO's a Sherman before it was itself Ko'd by a M26 with 3 shots, one of which penetrated its mantle.

      Thanks, redcoat, I appreciate it! While I can discern the two hits on the mantlet by the 100mm, I cannot see the mantlet hits by the M26.

        I think DogDodger provided a link a few months ago in this forum with a detailed step by step account with a Pershing destroying a Panther in the city of Cologne! And IIRC, one shot hit the mantlet.

        There is footage of this in youtube.
