Description Extended Information
 
Panzerstahl PS88033 German Early Production Sd. Kfz. 138/2 Jagdpanzer 38(t) Hetzer Light Tank Destroyer - Stug. Abteilung 1708, France, October 1944 (1:72 Scale) "We must do everything we can to promote anti-tank defense, and work just as hard to guarantee successful counter-attacks through the instrument of powerful tank forces of our own."
- Major-General Heinz Guderian, "Achtung Panzer!"

Manufactured in Czechoslovakia at the Skoda Munitions Works, the Hetzer was designed to be a low-cost light tank destroyer that could stand up to the rigors of battle on any front. Entering service in July 1944, the Hetzer used a wide range of existing components from the outclassed PzKpfw 38(t) tank. Although the Hetzer employed a wider hull and sloped armor, its cramped fighting compartment and limited angle of fire presented many problems to its crew. The Hetzer also featured a roof-mounted remote-controlled machine gun for close combat support.

This particular 1:72 scale replica of a German Hetzer was attached to Stug. Abteilung 1708 then deployed to France during October 1944. Special Order!
