Have you seen this new Tier VIII medium tank on the Premium Shop?
The Panzer 58, named after the year that it began serving in the Swiss Army, was an indigenous creation designed specifically for defending the mountainous land of Switzerland. It served from 1958 to 1964, when existing Panzer 58's were converted to Panzer 61's. The Panzer 61's watched over Switzerland until 1994, when they were replaced by more modern tanks such as the German Leopard 2 (licenced to Switzerland as the Panzer 87).
Even then, the Swiss Army continued to apply the lessons learnt from the development of the Panzer 58 to the tanks they built or modified for use in their homeland.
This vehicle is a powerful addition to Germany's arsenal of well-built tanks, because it addresses many of the shortcomings seen in its German counterparts.
