Commission: Panther by lady-die Commission: Panther by lady-die
Number four out of five in a new series of models for :iconluckyanov:

This is the Panther light BattleMech. Armed with a particle cannon and a four-tube short-ranged missile launcher. To differentiate my design from the classic model, I decided early on that I wanted to make this to, "Look more Tank than Cat." With that in mind, I took heavy inspiration from the Panzerkampfwagen V Panther from the engine deck, down to the tank's armor seams. In keeping with the armored vehicle aspect, I borrowed a bit of design from the Panzer IV turret to design the head.

So ist das Panzer yeah?  What happens when a Lyran builds a Panther? (Well, that and they tend to become assault mechs!)

I imagine they had similar construction methods for the hulls of both vehicles.
