Having pushed to the row of farmhouses, Panzerkampfwagen V Panther '534' is now positioned to the right side of SS-Untersturmführer Gerhard Mahn's SPW (Schützenpanzerwagen). The tank commander transverse the turret as he looks for target. The 7.5 cm Kampfwagen Kanone 42/L70 could fire both high explosive and armored piercing ammunition; the amount of each type of shell carried was dependent upon the mission. In addition to the main gun, each Panther was armed with two MG-34 machine guns, with a total of 4,200 rounds of ammunition carried aboard the vehicle. The picture was taken by SS-Kriegsberichter Ernst Baumann at Nurzec-Stacja, northeastern Poland, on 22 July 1944.
