Ernst Barkmann's Panther Ausf. A [Nr. 424]

Hello,

 

Apologies if a similar skin already exists, but Barkmann is my favourite German tank ace, and I'd love to use a skin based on his Panther.

 

In summer 1944 he was using the camo below, a dunkelgelb base with rotbraun and Olivgrün patches, with plain dunkelgelb running gear. The action he was involved in was very heavy, so his tank is often depicted as being weathered and battle-damaged, as you can also see in the pictures.

 

One particular engagement, the one he's most remembered for, occured during Operation Cobra in Northern France. In a location now known as Barkmann's Corner, Ernst repulsed the advance of a US tank Company single-handedly in his Panther with only some light infantry support.
