ACADEMY 13230 Jagdpanzer 38(t) Hetzer "LateProduction Version" 1:35 Scale

The Jagdpanzer 38(t), officially known as the Sd.kfz 138/2, was ordered by General Heinz Guderian to replace all tank destroyers, such as the Marder series, that had been designed as temporary solutions for a mobile tank destroyer, and also towed 7.5cm anti-tank guns. The new vehicle would be built on the Czech designed 38(t) chassis, armed with the 7.5cm PaK 39 L48 main gun with limited traverse and featured sloped armor and a very low profile. A remotely operated MG34 was mounted to the vehicle roof. It was generally well liked by German crews, fairly reliable and very concealable. Drawbacks were that it was very cramped inside, had limited ammunition and very thin armor. It was first fielded in July of 1944 and would eventually serve extensively on both fronts. Approximately 2800 were built. The name Hetzer is not official, and was used by German troops in the field, then adopted by post war publications.
