One of my favorite WWII tanks :). You can never be too lenient with the penetration of that gun :D

Man this game is almost perfect on the relationship between camo and field of battle.
For almost every vehicle, if you are in a green field of battle, the camo will be green, soldiers will be green, nazi will be gray.
If you are in a desert field of battle, tanks will be sand color, soldiers too.
Yeah, this game almost fits reallity. See for yourself, play a little.

I hate to be pedantic, but it would probably be better to call this a Jagdpanzer IV/70(V), as Jagdpanzer IV brings to mind its shorter-gunned cousin.

Don´t want to nit-pick here, but the Tank on the Picture is not the Sd.Kfz. 162 but the Sd.Kfz. 162/1 Jagdpanzer IV/70 (V) from Vomag!

The Sd.Kfz. 162 Jagdpanzer IV (also called Jagdpanzer IV/48) had a 7.5 cm PaK 39 L/48 Gun,
while the Sd.Kfz. 162/1 Jagdpanzer IV (Jagdpanzer IV/70) from Vomag in the picture had the 7,5cm StuK [SturmKanone] 42 L/70 (also called 7.5 cm PaK [PanzerabwehrKanone]42 L/70),
which was indeed a slightly modified Version of the Panthers 7,5cm KwK [KampfwagenKanone] 42 L/70 Gun!

Only the Sd.Kfz. 162/1 Version with the long L/70 Caliber Gun was called "Guderian-Ente" ("Guderian-Duck", not just "Duck") by the crews!
This was partly because Heinz Guderian strongly opposed and delayed the Project and partly because, as mentioned above, the long Gun made the vehicles somewhat nose-heavy, which caused them to handle "like a dabbling duck"!

But anyway a great Model and Texture! Good job guys!;-)

Quack! Quack! You're dead!
That's a very long cannon, I bet it can make short work of any tank.

Description

Jagdpanzer IV "Duck"

The Jagdpanzer IV was a German tank-destroyer built on the chassis of a Panzer IV. It was designed and built against the wishes of Heinz Guderian, who argued that the vehicle took away precious resources from the Panzer IV line of tanks. The Jagdpanzer was armed with the same 75mm gun as the Panther, the Pak 42, but this, combined with heavy frontal armor, meant that it was nose heavy and difficult to operate in rough terrain. In combat the Jagdpanzer performed exceptionally well in its intended role in Normandy, the Battle of the Bulge, and on the Eastern Front. However, when it was used as a replacement for tanks and assault guns, the Jagdpanzer suffered in combat.

The Sd.Kfz. 162 Jagdpanzer IV was modeled by Omni, with the texture done by AceS, and the wheels done by Toddel.
