Text in original Preserved German Tanks publication:


This Panther is on display in Worthington Park as part of the museum’s AFV collection.

Text in Preserved German Tanks Update:


This tank, after its capture, was shipped to Canada. It participated in V-E Day celebrations on Sparks Street in Ottawa on 8 May 1945. This means that it had been transported from Europe before the end of the war, but whether as a war trophy or for testing and experimentation by the military remains unknown. It was displayed at Canadian Forces Base Borden from the late 1940s until the Department of National Defence’s Directorate of History and Heritage, CFB Borden, and the Base Borden Military Museum donated it to the Canadian War Museum in February 2005. There it underwent restoration. All major mechanical components were removed and treated in order to preserve them. The interior and engine bay components were removed and refurbished and then re-installed. The exterior surfaces were cleaned and stabilized and re-treated with a “Zimmerit” paste created from a period recipe. Zimmerit had been applied in wartime to this Panther; residue of the original coating can be seen on the sections between the track and the upper hull. The restoration team reproduced many of the damaged or missing components in order to present the tank as it would likely have appeared on operations in 1944. After two years of labour by a dedicated team of volunteers it was unveiled to the public on 10 Januay 2008. (Source: CWM).
