Jagdpanther Tank Destroyer

Development of the Jagdpanther began on 2 October 1942 with an order to provide a heavy assault gun by mounting the 8.8cm Pak L/71 on a Panther chassis. The design extended the hull and side plastes of a normal Panther and mounting the gun in a sloped front plate. The Jagdpanther also had a hull mounted 7.92mm MG34.
