Introducing the Panzer Fight Stick VT
Panzer VT literally means: Tank Twin Gun. A more fitting name couldn't be had for the newest Panzer Fight Stick.
The Panzer Fight Stick VT is the culmination of 4 years of Fight Stick design and inputs from the community. I have taken elements from every iteration of the Panzer lineup and incorporated them into the perfect Two Player Panzer Fight Stick. It features everything great about the Panzer Fight Stick 3 but with SuperGun connectivity and a sick two player setup.
More Auxiliary Functions. When coupled with the Brook Universal Fighting Board, your fight stick build is usually limited due to not having enough buttons or cutouts. The Panzer 3 allow you to use START, SELECT, HOME, TOUCHPAD CLICK, L3, and R3. Additionally, using the Cherryï¿½ toggle switch you can shift your lever to Left Analog Stick Mode, Right Analog Stick Mode, or Direction Pad Mode with ease.
Front Button Lock. All Panzer Fight Stick 3's feature an included Cherryï¿½ toggle switch that disables or "locks" the front buttons. This MECHANICAL kill switch prevents accidental bumps or presses that can cause you to lose a match. In my opinion, this is the best way to disable those buttons as the software enabled locks used by most Fight Sticks can fail. The front panel lock can lock out the LS/RS/DP mode switch as well by setting the internal switch to the appropriate position.
Wide Sega Candy Cabinet Influenced Layout. Today's mass marketed fight sticks all use the same Vewlix inspired layout. It's not ergonomic and can make deadly match ending combos unattainable. The curved feel of the 2P layout on Sega's Candy Cabinets makes all buttons easier to hit due to them matching the natural curve of your fingers. Additionally, the lever is spaced to 95mm instead of the usual 59mm since you don't have to share space with a friend sitting right next to you at a cabinet.
Strength. Each Panzer Fight Stick VT is constructed with 14 gauge cold rolled steel and then powder coated. This ensures that the stick is sturdy and the finish is scratch resistant offering years quality use.
The Panzer Fight Stick VT features the Jasen's Customs unique EZ BUILD system creating an environment where everyone can build their fight stick quickly and cleanly. No special tools or skills required. Each button, joystick, and board plugs into each other cleanly and neatly with ribbon cables or custom designed wiring harness. The best part? They are all included! An average build can be accomplished within 45 minutes and it will look great every time. Each Panzer Fight Stick VT includes one main PCB that links the front facing LOCK switch, RS/DP/LS switch, all buttons and the PCB you chose together and makes connection to a Brook Universal Fighting Board or PS360+ a piece of cake.
Everyone has a PS3, PS4, XBOX 360, or XBOX ONE! If you have one you bet your buddy has the other. Why would you want a stick that only works on one or the other? Don't give up your home field advantage by using someone else's gear. I wanted a stick that could work on everything possible, hence the Panzer 3 was designed around the Brook Universal Fighting Board and the PS360+ as the brain for console and PC gaming; both proven piece of tech that the community adores. You can order your Brook Universal Fighting Boards with the kit and it will come with all required headers pre-soldered!
