|«|| While both the IFV-6c Panther and IFV-6a Cheetah are based on the Israeli armored personnel carrier chassis, they each serve very distinct roles in combat. The Panther is an APC that boasts strong armor to achieve maximal protection for transported personnel. The standard Panther is armed with an RCWS HMG, 40mm GMG, and smoke grenade launchers. In addition to its crew, 8 soldiers can be transported in the cargo area.|
The Panther is a heavily-armoured troop carrier that is designed to be modular. Its chassis can be modified in order to be adapted for use in other roles, though its primary purpose remains transporting troops into or out of combat.
It is fitted with an RCWS turret that is armed with a dual-mount 12.7 mm heavy machine gun and 40 mm automatic grenade launcher.
The externally mounted RCWS comes pre-loaded with a single 500 round belt of 12.7 mm ammunition, and also has 96 rounds of high-explosive 40 mm grenades.
Sharing the same chassis as its anti-aircraft and recovery vehicle variants, the Panther is well armoured and can sustain considerable amounts of punishment before being rendered immobile. Being a true armoured personnel carrier unlike its CSAT counterpart however, the Panther is only lightly armed and can provide little fire support for its dismounts against anything other than infantry and light vehicles.
The Panther has a seating capacity of eleven personnel including the crew. The crew includes the driver, gunner and commander. Similar to all vehicles in its family (along with the Slammer), passengers mount and dismount via a small door located at the rear of the vehicle instead of using a conventional ramp.
- The Panther is based on the real-world "Namer" APC designed by IMI Systems Ltd of Israel.
- Screenshots released during the pre-Alpha phase of ArmA 3's development indicated that the Panther, along with several other vehicles that are now used by NATO, was originally meant to be a CSAT vehicle instead. However, the Panther was eventually replaced by the BTR-K Kamysh for CSAT use by the time of the Alpha and Beta's release.
