The driver revs the mighty 690hp V-12 Maybach HL230 P30 engine, and the tank destroyer noses forwards. The tracks of the 50.15-ton Jagdpanther clank across the muddy soil until it has taken up its ambush position along the tree line. The gunner aims the long-barreled 8.8cm PaK 43 gun at the approaching platoon of enemy tanks while the commander watches through binoculars from his open hatch. With a spurt of flame and an explosive noise, a shell speeds towards its target with unerring accuracy……Based on the Panther, and with a low profile and sloping armor, Germany’s Jagdpanther was a very successful design. It mainly saw service on the Eastern Front, though it was also widely used in the Ardennes offensive, and the Allies first encountered it in Normandy in the summer of 1944.
