So what I'm seeing is that three SPGs were firing at you, and it took you several seconds to die. Far better than just being instantly annihilated by the first arty like before the patch. At least this way your whole team got a ~20 second reprieve from arty out of your sacrifice.
That aside, no arty player worth his salt will snap shot, because it is almost allways a waste of a shell. More likely those guys were pre-aimed at a common route, and you were just the first guy to show up in their sights.
What do you mean by a Panther A? You don't have a Panther, according to your service record. Do you mean the Panzer IV A? The tier III? That tank doesn't exactly "speed around".
(edit: I'm not saying you're wrong and you should feel dumb, I want you to understand why you were insta-gibbed by arty instead of just blaming it on RNG or hax or whatever. Also, bring a med kit. To every battle you seriously want to win. I know, it can seem expensive, but they are worth it. I have never bought premium time or gold. I've had some premium tanks gifted to me, but I also have 7k+ gold lying around from tourneys. So it is possible, and worth it, to bring a medkit, repair kit, and fire extinguisher with you to every game.)
