To kill a panther...

So the Panther was actually quite vulnerable to side hits. I have the impression that the bazooka is not so powerfull as the Sherman's 75 mm gun... Is this true?

a Bazooka is nothing more than a short range rocket (hollow shaped charge) witch was effective at a range of max. 100 yards penetrating 100mm

Yes, ... so this implies that the Panther was vulnerable from the sides to almost any allied anti-tank gun used in Normandy and the rest of Europe until the end of the war.

Yes! that is correct, Panther was a very good tank but it was not impervious to allied guns!

If Zaloga is correct that KV2 is the one that stopped 6th PzDiv advance for two days at Rasyeinyia Crossroad in 23 June 1941...
