Jagdpanther Self Propelled Anti-tank Gun

During World War Two self-propelled anti-tank guns were developed to counter the heavy tanks. The JagdPanther was probably one of the best.
The JagdPanther (Hunting Panther) was introduced during 1944. It was based on the chassis of the Panther and mounted an 8.8 cm Pak 43 anti-tank gun. The hedgerows of Normandy suited the defensive nature of this vehicle. There were a large number of JagdPanther employed during the Battle of the Bulge in the Ardennes at the end of 1944.
