Atlas Editions ATL4660106 German Sd. Kfz. 173 Jagdpanther Tank Destroyer - schwere Panzer Abteilung 654, France, 1944 (1:72 Scale) "With this division alone, you must throw the Allies into the sea. Your objective is the coast no, not the coast, it is the sea."
- Heinz Guderian to General Fritz Bayerlein, East Prussia, January 26th, 1944

In the fall of 1942, the German Waffenamt issued an order to develop a heavy assault gun to combat the growing menace posed by Russian armored forces all along the "ostfrontier" or eastern front. What resulted was the Sd. Kfz. 173 Jagdpanther tank destroyer, arguably the best long-range tank destroyer of the war. The Jagdpanther mounted a powerful 8.8cm Pak L/71 cannon within a fixed turret, which was situated atop a standard Panther V chassis. Although production of the tank was begun at MIAG in January 1944, it took another ten months before the larger NMH plant could expand the production run in time for the "Wacht am Rhein" counteroffensive. By war's end only 392 vehicles had entered service with the Wehrmacht, but these had a telling effect on the prosecution of the war.

Pictured here is a 1:72 scale replica of a German Jagdpanther tank destroyer that was attached to schwere Panzer Abteilung 654. Now in stock!
