After 190+ posts, 21k+ views, 200 votes, and 1 and a 1/2 years of support this suggestion has FINALLY been implemented as a tier 8 premium on Supertest so thanks to everyone for the support. This is one of the very rare times WG listens to the NA population for suggestions lol.

The "Awful" Panther by many is considered bad but a lot of people will recall this tank being fun and agreeing that it fits the role as a Premium. Its such an oddball tank that was neither overpowered nor underpowered as it used a Panther hull mounting a VK28.01 light tank turret using either the 10.5cm and 7.5cm guns. The tank was hardly ever considered a threat unless your tank was lighter than 40 tons then it could deal quite a bit of ramming damage if it didn't outright ram kill you. On top of being one of the best pound for pound ramming tanks(fun wise) its 7.5cm gun allowed for it to snipe and its 10.5cm allowed for some decent derp gun action.

 

My reasoning for this thing to be a premium is because chances are we are more likely to see a tank brought back as a premium rather than a normal tank and well the awful panther was the most balanced light tank in the game making it a  perfect candidate to be a premium. As for its stats I say it should be in its pre removal fully upgraded state staying at tier 7 as shown by the screenshot below of the tank before it was swapped out for the SP1C. Only real change I could see it getting is potentially increasing its HP a bit given how crazy the meta is for the game right now.

OH and Wargaming if you actually bring it back for the love of god don't put any Wargaming logo junk on it like how you did with the AMX 13 57 or that premium M41 Bulldog...everyone hates that crap.

P.S. Mind giving one to me for free if you bring it back as a premium? lol

 

 

 

 

EDIT: This thread is now a year old and with over 170 votes and 3/4ths of people in support of it...at this point WG just bring the damn tank back already so I don't have to keep bumping this thread.:sceptic:

I loved my Awesome Panther (I won't call it Awful, since it wasn't), and would gladly pay to get it returned. 

 

-Side note: the howitzer is the 10.5 cm, not a 5cm. The 5cm with 67mm of AP pen would be atrocious on a tier 7 light.

Premium tank rules means it will be far worse than you're hoping for

Awful Panther didn't have the most stellar guns to use when compared to other lights and its mobility was a little lacking not to mention its large profile.

 

The tank could easily be implemented back into the game as a premium without changing anything about it. Hell if anything the tank has been powercreeped even further with all the new tanks they've added over the past year and having to rebalance so many others.

Premiums get 1 module configuration, which means it's pretty much straight from historical data as the baseline

 

That means you'll be playing the absolute stock edition of the old Auf. Panther

If they implemented it as the full stock configuration it would be the worst premium in the game even worse than the Kanonjagdpanzer.

 

For balance I could see them implementing it with all or at least half the module upgrades with the second 7.5cm gun.

Best Argument ever!!!

 

If this works maybe WG will bring back the T-50-2 (aka Motorcycle) as well.

They're actually planning to bring that back somewhat when multiple tank hulls are introduced for some tanks. They mentioned the T-50 as one tank that likely may get mutliple hulls when and if they implement their multiple hull module idea.

 

I'm doubtful we will see multiple hulls but I'd rather see that than the stupidly idiotic idea of multiple turret control which would cause them to have to rebalance so many tanks.

give me my big beautiful bastard child back WG,

 

tier 5-6 Light tank, with the "historical" 5cm would do nice...

I mean the Leopard gets the 5cm...

 

though one can dream of its elited setup back in as a tier 7 premium tank... 

 

AUFKLARUNGSPANZER PANTHER, MAKE WOT GREAT AGAIN!

The Awful Panther occasionally got a "power creep" buff but never really got hit by the nerf bat much if at all. T-50-2 on the other hand was broken as hell because of its mobility and thus it was replaced with the MT-25 "Bathtub".

Funny how my thread gets moved to the "correct section" of the forums when there are tons of threads with polls in other sections of the forums while this one is intended as a suggestion and not a poll discussion...bit of fail moderation there :facepalm:

maybe it should have that tier IV gun with the leopard turret but on this tank with better reload, accuracy, aim time, and maybe way better pen on Prem and AP rounds, or have instead the High Pen Machine gun thats on the pz 2 G, luchs, and leopard

I'll take the 3cm if I can get a 50 shell clip and 120mm of AP pen and 170mm-ish APCR pen at tier 6. Sign me up for that fun filled fantasy ride!
