Yes, that's why I thought they'd have difficulty moving it

The German army of 1943 certainly did - they delayed the Battle of Kursk until more Panthers were ready, then a large proportion of them broke down because the drive train was originally designed for a much lighter tank.

Meddling in the design made it definitely a Nazi tank in that regard.
