JAGDPANZER 38 HETZER Walk Around (Hard Cover)
Also available with soft cover (27027)
By the end of World War II, the Jagdpanzer 38 Hetzer was the Wehrmacht's most widely used tank destroyer. Armed with the formidable Rheinmetall-Borsig Pak 39 L/48 7.5cm anti-tank gun the Hetzer served on both the Western and Eastern fronts. More than 2,800 Jagdpanzer 38s were build in just over one year - from April 1944 through May 1945 - far more than any other WWII German tank destroyer. This groundbreaking volume features detailed photos of early, medium, and late Hetzer variants and contains the first-ever published wartime photos of the vehicle's interior. Pictures of Jagdpanzer 38 vehicles in Bulgarian and Swiss service appear here for the first time, and the SK-23 steam-powered recovery vehicle based on the Hetzer is also documented along with extensive coverage of the G 13, including the first-ever color photographs of that variant's interior. Illustrated with over 200 photographs, plus detailed line drawings, and color profiles; 80 pages.
