Reviews

 
Probably the finest Tank destroyer built during the WWII, the Jagdpanther came as an unpleasant surprise to the Allies and it was only thanks to the allied bomber offensive that the industrial firm Alkett didn't manage to produce enough Jagdpanthers to meet the demand.Jagdpanther designs followed on from the more lightly armored Panzerjager designs which took an anti-tank gun and mounted it on top of a tank chassis with supplementary armor fitted around the gun crew. Without the complexity of the rotating turret, Jagdpanzer designs could be quickly produced which was important in supplying fighting vehicles to the Russian front. However in lacking a turret the Jagdpanzers were more limited in use. Generally they were used as a second line or reserve in the attack or to form a defensive line. Which units used the Jagdpanther? What were its drawbacks? How was it modified? What colors were used in camouflage? These questions and many more are answered in this first release of our new Tech series."
