?|It is a very different tank from its predecessor, the [[Marder II]]. Initially, its poor speed and restricted arc of fire seem to be a downgrade from the long-range firepower of the Marder II; a point that provokes a lot of mixed opinions from players. It takes some time, and a few upgrades, to unlock some of the Hetzer's true potential and allow its excellent sloped armor, low profile, and powerful guns to come to the fore. The 105mm cannon that you are able to unlock on the Hetzer also comes with AP rounds that have 63 penetration and can easily one-shot any tank that is tier 4 or lower and its HE rounds can bring quite a lot of damage, especially if you shoot at the weakspots of a tank. Therefore, the Hetzer is an excellent ambush tank and a decent sniper, while being able to sustain a surprising amount of damage, provided you can keep the enemy within your frontal arc. The Hetzer does have a big weakspot however, its side armor and back armor are very brittle meaning if it is flanked it will be destroyed without mercy. The Hetzer's ammo rack is another problem. The ammo rack is rather close to the top of this tank, meaning it is quite vulnerable to artillery fire. This sets the tone for much of the German tank destroyer line. Most of all, it is important to remember: "Hetzers gonna Hetz".+|It is a very different tank from its predecessor, the [[Marder II]].

The <value_unset_error> is a [[|]] tier .

<value_unset_error>

It is a very different tank from its predecessor, the Marder II. Initially, its poor speed and restricted arc of fire seem to be a downgrade from the long-range firepower of the Marder II; a point that provokes a lot of mixed opinions from players. It takes some time, and a few upgrades, to unlock some of the Hetzer's true potential and allow its excellent sloped armor, low profile, and powerful guns to come to the fore. The 10.5cm cannon that you are able to unlock on the Hetzer has the option of AP rounds with 63 penetration and can easily one-shot any tank tier 4 or lower. The HE rounds can bring quite a lot of damage, especially if you shoot at the weakspots of a tank. Therefore, the Hetzer is an excellent ambush tank and a decent sniper with the 7.5cm L/48, while being able to sustain a surprising amount of damage, provided you can keep the enemy within your frontal arc. The Hetzer does have a big weakspot however, its side armor and back armor are very thin meaning if it is flanked it will be destroyed without mercy. The Hetzer's ammo rack is another problem, it is rather close to the top of this tank, meaning it is quite vulnerable to artillery fire. This sets the tone for much of the German tank destroyer line. Most of all, it is important to remember: "Hetzers gonna Hetz".

The <value_unset_error> marks the end of its line.

Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • Above average hit points
  • Above average penetration
  • Above average accuracy and aim time


Cons:


  • Below average engine power, top speed, and traverse speed
  • Below average armour
  • Below average damage and rate of fire
  • Below average gun and elevation arc
  • Below average ammo capacity


Performance

The Hetzer stock isn't terrible- its starting gun is identical damage wise to the Pak 39 L/48, and just 8mm short of penetration for AP. It plays very differently from the Marder II, mainly in that it features very bouncy frontal armour but lacks a real long range gun. Instead, it gains the fast firing Pak 39 L/48, which is pretty accurate; or the infamous 10,5cm StuH 42 L28, a derp gun that can one shot a lot of tanks, but lacks penetration. You should mainly load HE with this gun, and try and play it as an ambush tank, regardless of the gun. Its high camo value makes it hard to spot, so you can stay hidden until the moment you fire. A camo net helps a lot, and a rammer is practically needed with the 10,5 cm.

Vulnerabilities

The front armour is extremely slanted and this has a tendency to bounce a lot of shots (almost every shot from a T4 or lower). The drivers view port is the sole weak point here, which is pretty small in itself. The rear and side armour is paper thin, so wherever possible, flank this TD and dont take it head on unless you can pen the frontal armour. Regardless of whether you can penetrate its frontal armour or not, it can do a lot of damage with the derp gun. It can spin on a dime, but is as vulnerable to detracking as any turretless TD.

Historical Info

JPz 38(t) in museum at CFB Borden in Ontario, Canada

The Jagdpanzer 38(t) (Sd.Kfz. 138/2), later known as Hetzer ("baiter"), was a German light tank-destroyer of the Second World War based on a modified pre-war Czechoslovakian Panzer 38(t) chassis. The project was inspired by the Romanian "Mareşal" tank destroyer.

The name "Hetzer" was, at the time, not commonly used for this vehicle. It was the designation for a related prototype, the E-10. The Škoda factory (for a very short period) confused the two names in its documentation, and the very first unit equipped with the vehicle (for a few weeks) applied the incorrect name until matters were cleared. However, there exists a memorandum from Heinz Guderian to Hitler incorrectly claiming that an unofficial name, Hetzer, had spontaneously been coined by the troops. Post-war historians, basing themselves on this statement, made the name popular in their works. The vehicle was never named as such in official documents.

Development

Hetzer on display in the Royal Military Museum, Brussels

The Jagdpanzer 38(t) was intended to be more cost-effective than the much more ambitious Jagdpanther and Jagdtiger designs of the same period. Using a proven chassis, it avoided the mechanical problems of the larger armored vehicles.

It was better armored than the earlier Panzerjäger Marder and Nashorn with a sloped armor front-plate of 60 mm, sloped back at 60 degrees from the vertical (equivalent in protection to about 120 mm), carried a reasonably powerful gun, was mechanically reliable, small, and easily concealed. It was also cheap to build. The Jagdpanzer 38(t) succeeded the Marder III (based on the same chassis) in production from April 1944: about 2,584 were built until the end of the war. The older Marder III Panzerjager-series retained the same vertically-sided chassis as Panzer 38(t). In the Hetzer, the lower hull-sides sloped slightly to increase the available interior space and enable a fully-enclosed fighting compartment. Because of the fully enclosed armor, it was 5 tons heavier than the Marder III. To compensate for the increased weight, track shoe width was increased from 293 mm to 350 mm. Additionally, in late 1944, Guderian ordered the petrol engine replaced by a 190hp air-cooled Tatra Type 928 diesel engine, a result of Germany's rapidly diminishing supply of petrol fuel. This change was not immediately implimented to prevent disruption of production, but by spring 1945, Tatra diesel-powered Hetzers were emerging from factories.

The Hetzer equipped the Panzerjägerabteilungen (tank-destroyer battalions) of the infantry divisions, giving them some limited mobile anti-armor capability. After the war, Czechoslovakia continued to build the type (versions ST-I and ST-III for training version: about 180 units built) and exported 158 vehicles (version G-13) to Switzerland. Most vehicles in today's collections are of Swiss origin.

By order of Adolf Hitler in November 1944, a number of Jagdpanzer 38(t)s were refurbished straight from the factory with a Keobe flamethrower and accompanying equipment instead of the normal gun. The flame projector was encased in a metal shield reminiscent of that of a gun barrel, and easily prone to damage. Less than 50 of these vehicles, designated Flammpanzer 38, were completed before the end of the war, but they were used operationally against Allied forces on the Western Front. Further variants were a Hetzer carrying the 150 mm sIG33/2 Howitzer, of which 30 were produced before the end of the war, and the Bergepanzer 38(t)Hetzer, a light recovery vehicle of which 170 were produced. Plans were made to produce other variants, including an assault-gun version of the Hetzer carrying a 105mm StuH main cannon, and an anti-aircraft variant mounted with a flak turret. The war ended before these proposed models were put into production.

Performance

The Jagdpanzer 38(t) fitted into the lighter category of German tank-destroyers that began with the Panzerjäger I, continued with the Marder series, and ended with the Jagdpanzer 38(t). The 75 mm gun fitted on the Jagdpanzer 38 (t) was a modified 75 mm Pak 39 L/48, very similar to the late Panzer IV marks. The 75 mm kwk 40 L/48 could destroy nearly all allied tanks in service at long ranges, and its fully-enclosed armor protection made it a safer vehicle to crew than the Marder II or Marder III series. The Jagdpanzer 38(t) was one of the most common late-war German tank-destroyers. It was available in relatively large numbers and was generally mechanically reliable. Also, its small size made it easier to conceal than larger vehicles.

Like some other late-war German SPGs, the Hetzer mounted a remote-control machine gun mount which could be fired from within the vehicle. This proved popular with crews, though to reload the gun, a crewmember needed to expose themselves to enemy fire.

Its main failings were comparatively thin armor, limited ammunition storage, as well as torsion-bars and drive wheels that were prone to failure due to the increased weight of the Hetzer body on the Type 38 (t) suspension.
