Historical Description Edit

Of all the combatants in WWII, the German armed forces possessed the most advanced technology and tactics for armored warfare. The Jagpanzer was a dedicated Tank Destroyer, with the purpose of destroying enemy armor. Tank Destroyers were designed with no turret, which followed for a more powerful main gun and a low-profile silhouette that was ideal for ambushes. In the massive tank battles on the Eastern Front, such as Brody and Kursk, the numerically inferior Germans could inflict massive casualties on the Russians - although that was often due to air superiority in addition to advanced armored technology.

The Jagdpanzer, as well as other dedicated Tank Destroyers fielded by Germany were often built on the hulls of other armor. For example, the Panzer III, Panzer IV, and in the end stages of the war, the Panther and Tiger II. This is because it was often cheaper and more efficient to retrofit hulls instead of creating a whole new turret assembly for the weapon.
