Description

The first prototype of the Jagdpanzer IV was presented to the German Führer in October 1943, with production of an eventual 769 examples commencing in January 1944 by Vomag. Based on the reliable chassis, running gear and drive train of the Panzer IV, this specialist “tank hunter” was low-slung and had well-sloped armor. The vertical glacis of the Pz.Kpfw. IV was replaced by two angled plates that provided a sharp nose. The 24-ton Early-Production model mounted a 7.5cm PaK39 L/48 gun in a fixed superstructure.
