The panther from luftwaffe can fire smoke shell after it's gun is destroyed. I don't know for other tanks that use smoke shells.

As Mr. FeministDonut said - Some tanks (such as US M10) can fire a smoke shell at a location and some tanks (shermans, Panthers etc.) have smoke launchers which pop one smoke shell at the position of the tank - these don't need a functioning cannon to do it.

Thought it was with a cannon shell since i remember choosing the location of smoke. Anyway maybe i was wrong.

That is also present in the game - e.g. Tetrarchs can select a location where they launch the smoke from the smoke launchers, also no active gun needed. Maybe it is the same for the Panther, I am not sure right now. It is simply the way that some units fire the smoke with their gun and some use launcher so the gun is not required.
