Panther 222

Panzerkampfwagen V, Panther, Ausführung G, Sd.Kfz.171.
This tank was assigned to the 107th Panzer Brigade formed at the end of July 1944, supplemented with remnants of the 25th Panzergrenadier-Division withdrawn from the Eastern Front. The 107th was transported by train to Venlo in September 1944 during operation Market Garden to take part in the battle around Eindhoven. The tank was used in the actions of this brigade at the bridge over the Wilhelmina Canal at Son and the breakthrough at Veghel (18-24 September). During the Battle of Overloon, where the 107th Panzer Brigade formed the core of the German front, Panther 222 (2nd Company, 2nd Platoon, 2nd Vehicle) was knocked out, probably by a British PIAT.
