US Intel Report – Panther Infra-red
This seems to be a popular subject so i thought i would share this intelligence report. Its a US Army Intelligence Report of the Infra-Red equipment as found on 4 Panther Ausf. G recovered north east of Minden.
“Four Panther Model G tanks equipped with Infra-red were at FALLINGBOSTEL with the Panzer Jaeger Lehr and Versuchskompanie. They were, however, not withdrawn northwards with the soft skinned vehicles on the formation of Kampfgruppe Uhu but were committed, in a daylight role, into the battle north east of MINDEN. The following report is based on examination of these tanks, three of which were burnt out and the fourth badly smashed, and on the interrogation of one of the crew who subsequently rejoined Kampfgruppe Uhu.”
