  • Beschrijving

In 1943 wilde het Duitse opperbevel een nieuwe tank destroyer om alle oude types, waaronder de Marder, te vervangen en de Hetzer was snel gemaakt.

Op basis van de Panzerkampfwagen 38 (t) ontstond de Hetzer voor een bemanning van 4 koppen in de lage, compacte romp. Hij was bewapend met een krachtig Pak 39 L/48 75mm kanon, op het chassis gemonteerd onder een schuine bepantsering voor een betere bescherming. Tegen Mei 1945 waren er 2584 van geproduceerd. Tijdens de productie periode werden voortdurend wijzigingen aangebracht wat leidde tot de verschillende "begin, midden en einde" productie modellen.

Defending the Homeland From the middle stages of WWII, Allied tank designs showed steady improvement and featured greater firepower and armor protection. Under these circumstances, the German army increasingly depended on turretless tank destroyers armed with a powerful gun on a limited-traverse mount. Among these was the Hetzer, a compact tank destroyer based on the Czech-made 38t tank chassis that had 60mm sloped frontal armor and a 75mm main gun. Entering service from July 1944, the Hetzer's low sihouette and powerful armament made it a respectable adversary on both the Eastern and Western fronts. Approximately 2,800 Hetzers of different variants were produced, and they also served with the Czech and Swiss armed forces after the end of WWII.
