Panzer: Pantherstellung
After WWII, German workers excavate the remains of a dug-in Panther used as a stationary gun platform during the Battle of Berlin. Worn-out Panthers with their guns intact but their wheels and engines removed, were dug into the streets of several German cities as a stop-gap measure during the last days of the Third Reich. A more elaborate version of the concept was the Pantherturm which consisted of a Panther turret mounted on a pre-fabricated steel or concrete hull which was used extensively in fortifications like the Gothic Line
