Historical Reference

A draft project of a heavy tank destroyer, developed in 1947–1948 under the influence of the Jagdpanther. The vehicle was to feature a 120 mm gun as the main armament. The distinctive feature of the vehicle was three 20 mm MG 151/20 machineguns, mounted on top of the fighting compartment and rear. Existed only in blueprints.
