The Panther Artillery is an inaccurate but heavy armoured field artillery unit, serving the Martollo Cartel in shelling areas that the Catapult wasn't able to hit, the tank was never built in the world during World War II during the Company of Nation's campaign against terrorism, the artillery has started being active around 2025 and is one of the heavier artillery platforms since its design during World War II.
Near the end of World War II, Company of Nations member Germany planned to create a new artillery platform using a chassis its known proven Panther Tank, called the Geschutzwagen Panther. However the design never left the drawing boards and the plans for mass production were cancelled at the end of the war with the defeat of the terrorist factions.
Using the tank as a base, the Martollo Cartel, who already utilized Panther tanks in their campaign against the New Andes Armada, created the Geschutzwagen Panther after using several documents and plans acquired from various means including taking spy photos of the plans. After field testing, the tank was finished and the Cartel finally brought it into the world after nearly one hundred years since it was designed.
During the World War II there were no prototypes of Geschutzwagen Panther constructed. When the Cartel took the design and started constructing them, the Panther Artillery became a main long range support platform during bombardments of New Andes Armada's bases or cities.
