Jagdpanzer IV / Sd.Kfz.162
Jagdpanzer IV_48 with 7,5 cm PaK 39.
The Jagdpanzer IV was an excellent tank destroyer, which could assist other tanks. A nightmare for any Russian or Allied tank commander. The tank is relatively low and has a sloping armor, well suited to withstand incoming grenades. The tank was quick and agile. The armament of the first generation was a good and effective enough to beat most Allied tanks to with the exception of the IS-2. The armament of the 2nd generation Jagdpanzer IV was able to pierce almost any armor at all distances.
The Jagdpanzer IV was in production from January to November of 1944 with total of almost 800 produced by Vomag (chassis number 320001 to 321000).
