The fan circle Gewalt sold a Panther Details dōjinshi with an independently-produced anime DVD at Tokyo's Comic Market (Comiket) 82 event on Sunday. The dōjinshi uses manga illustrations to delve into the minutiae of the Panther, a real-world German tank from World War II. Gewalt member Excel posted a promotional video for the bonus DVD anime earlier this month:
(The use of German iconography from World War II in the video may offend some viewers. To turn off the scrolling comments, select the word balloon icon on the bottom right corner of the video.)
Gewalt previously devoted an entire dōjinshi (Homura Weapons) to the guns of the magical girl Homura in Puella Magi Madoka Magica.

Update: Excel has contributed to several Japanese military books that Icarus Publishing has printed, along with Hiroko Uchida, Takeshi Nogami, Humikane Shimada, and Keuma. Thanks, Dan Kanemitsu.
