I'm running some gunnery tests to kill time during the coronavirus lockdown. Using a Panther A as the shooter and a Sherman with the 75mm gun as the target. In a small number of tests the buttoned Sherman has spotted the open-hatch Panther first and even got off one or two shots before the Panther spots him. This last one amazingly demonstrated the ricochet problem with the gun mantle, including two separate penetration decals on the Panther.

And another one. Interesting the size of the shell used in the 75mm Pak40 AT gun.
