About the German Army Tank Destroyer Jagdpanther
The Jagdpanther is regarded as one of the best tracked weapon systems during
WWII. The awesome Pak43/3, L71 88mm gun was mounted on the proven Panther chassis.
The gun was installed into the box shaped superstructure which featured steel
armor of 80mm thickness at the front and 50mm thickness on the sides. The armor
was also sloped for improved protection. The Jagdpanther weighed 46 tons and
was propelled by a powerful Maybach V12 engine. These tank destroyers were characterized
by a good balance of fire power, protection, and mobility.
