About the German Tank Destroyer Jagdpanther Late Version
The Jagdpanther featured a powerful 88mm gun mounted in a superstructure featuring 80mm armor at the front and 50mm at the sides. The front and side armor plates were sloped to further improve their protective power, giving the Jagdpanther its imposing, wedge-shaped appearance. Weighing in at 46 tons and propelled by the powerful Maybach V12 cylinder engine, this tank destroyer featured a good balance of fire power, protection and mobility. A total of 415 Jagdpanthers were produced by 1945, most equipping battalions on the Eastern Front, although many were transferred to the West to take part in the Ardennes Offensive.
