    The destroyed German Tank at the Cologne, Cathedral. It lost a sudden violent duel with new 3AD(Third Armored Division) Pershing M-26.
    Unidentified 3AD soldiers inspect a German Mark V Panther tank several days after it had been knocked out on March 6, 1945, by an M-26 commanded by Sgt. Robert Early, E Co, 32nd Armored Regiment. The Panther took three hits from the M-26's 90mm gun. At least three of the five-man German crew were confirmed killed. The M-26 was not hit.


    This is a good idea for the mission, but there are too many buildings should be made (especially Cathedral) and there is a problem to implement cobblestone. Though, it's possible.

    As I've understood, Commander of the Panther hit two Shermans from tunnel, then came to the corner waiting for the next attack. At this time Pershing rolled out from Dominikanem street. Panther managed to rotate the turret into Pershing's direction to meet him, but Commander waited, coz he wasn't sure it was American tank (there were three tanks left to cover German retreat:2xPz.V and 1xPz.IV) and it was a fatal mistake. Pershing shoot in the moving and damaged Panther through the gunmask. Then M-26 stopped and shoot second time. The video started exactly from the second shot. Four members of crew managed to bail out. Possibly, loader was killed and burnt inside the hull. Later, three members of crew captured by American troops. Two of them were heavily wounded and died. Commander Bartelborth and fourth member(his fate unknown) survived.

    On the next day American tankmen decided to make a test the Panther's frontal armor. They moved tank at ~300m and shoot 13 times. No any shells penetrated, there was only driver hatch damaged (fall off).

    I've found a model of destroyed town. So, theoretically it's possible to re-create such mission, but there is the hell a lot of work with models.
