When’s the best time to watch Doctor Who?
You’re welcome, fandom. I have joined your ranks.
The Jagdpanther was a logical development of the Panther tank chassis, providing a very suitable (albeit somewhat expensive) platform for the extremely potent 88mm PaK43 anti-tank gun to be housed in a decently armoured fully-enclosed superstructure. This was unquestionably the most formidable German tank destroyer produced in worthwhile numbers, being capable of despatching any Allied tank at any practical range - East or West - and it was exceptionally difficult to knock out frontally. There was, however a commensurate cost in weight and maintenance. The Jagdpanther commenced active service in June 1944 and served until the end of the war.
