    Damaged Panther

    I have found this photo with a damaged Panther in Italy. I wonder what are these sticks on the frontal armor for?

    Those are probably a sort of fascine to help the tank navigate/get out of terrain obstacles like mud and similar...

    May be these sticks are kinda protection against bazooka? Coz I see the same sticks located on the turret also.

    Perhaps, but that part of the glacis should be impenetrable to Bazooka rockets anyhow? The turret sides are another matter, of course - befuddling...

    These sticks to pull out the Panther from the bog. That is obvious explanation.
