German Jagdpather SDKFZ History:
The German Jagdpanther Sdkfz. 173 is an iconic armoured fighting vehicle of World War II. Developed in the late 1930s and used primarily on the Eastern Front, the Jagdpanther was one of the most effective tank destroyers to come out of the war.
History of Development
The German Jagdpanther Sdkfz. 173 is a wartime tank destroyer designed by Porsche in response to Germany’s need for a heavy anti-tank gun armed with excellent mobility. The Jagdpanther was produced in order to create a better anti-tank platform during the 1920s and 1930s; however, due to budgetary limitations and politics, development only began in earnest when the war became inevitable in the late thirties.
Based on Panther Tank Chassis
The Jagdpanther was based on the chassis of Germany’s Panther medium tank, while its primary weapon system was a 75mm-long L/70 anti-tank cannon mounted low in its superstructure. This configuration allowed for extended firing ranges and provided additional protection against armour piercing rounds that ricocheted off the upper parts of other tanks like side or turret armour plating. In addition, it had a small frontal arc that could be angled away from terrain features that could potentially provide cover from enemy fire when occupying hull down positions–a technique made popular by Ferdinand Porsche’s Tiger I Ausfuehrung E Tiger 2 variant with its Schmalturm turret successively used as well with newer 120mm long L/55 cannons variants such as “Edig Panzer” series.
Performance During WWII
During World War II, some 560 Jagdpanzers were deployed along all fronts, offering excellent performance against Allied armored vehicles beginning on June 6th 1944 when dozens attempted to halt Allies amphibious landings at Normandy Invasion beaches resulting in destruction several Sherman tanks before they themselves getting destroyed by supporting Sherman Fireflies possessing far better guns compared to M10 US Tank Destroyers in their disposal back then.
