Like many of Germany's Assault Guns and Tank Destroyers, the Jagdpanther was based off a preexisting tank chassis, that of the Panther tank. The Jagdpanther was designed to mount the powerful 8,8cm L/71 that the Tiger II mounted, and to be a happy medium between that of the Elefant, which was too heavy, and the Nashorn, which was too under-armored. The Jagdpanther proved to be one of the most lethal anti-tank vehicles in World War Two, but it was produced too little and too late to have a significant impact. A total of 415 vehicles were manufactured from January 1944 through the end of the war.
The Jagdpanther lives up to it's lethal history, thanks to a good mobility and powerful guns in the 8,8cm Pak 43 L/71 and 10,5cm Pak L/52. It is one of the best snipers in the game.
The Jagdpanther leads to the Jagdpanther II.
Pros and Cons
- Excellent Accuracy with all guns
- Excellent gun in the 8,8cm L/71; excellent accuracy, excellent penetration, good damage, good aim time, good DpM, cheap ammo
- Excellent gun in the 10,5cm L/52; excellent accuracy, excellent penetration, excellent aim time, great damage, good DpM
- Good Mobility
- Decent View Range
- Poor Camouflage value for a Tank Destroyer
- Large silhouette
- Armor is only strong on frontal superstructure; weak everywhere else
The Jagdpanther is a very good TD and, mounted with either the 8,8cm L/71 or 10,5cm L/52 guns, presents a serious threat to all enemies. It's only weakness is a large profile and the usual downsides of turretless TD's (i.e. low hit points, somewhat weak armor, quite helpless if tracked, etc)
Due to the accuracy of your guns and your large profile, the Jagdpanther works best as a long range and mobile sniper, and all of it's guns are more than accurate for this kind of work. Since the camouflage value isn't great, the Jagdpanther should stay near actual cover that it can back into when it get's detected. Ideally, find cover with concealment directly nearby to help minimize exposure.
The Jagdpanther is blessed in that it has two great top guns to choose from, and each has a plus side with little to no negatives. The 8,8cm L/71 is an improved version of the gun the Tiger mounts, boasting higher rate of fire and greatly improved accuracy thanks to better aim time and dispersion rates. Coupled with a cheap shell cost, the L/71 is a great gun for making money. The 10,5cm L/52 is a harder hitting gun with a better aim time than the L/71, with only a little less accuracy and slower rate of fire. The shells cost considerably more though, so if you want more money at the end of the match stick with the 8,8, but if you want to dish out more damage especially in a single shot, go with the 10,5.
Despite the heavy slope of the armor, the closer in to a threat the easier it becomes for them to defeat it, so avoid close range brawling when possible. If you do not have cover to back into when return fire is directed your way, angle the front armor to produce some extra bounces or wiggle the face of your tank to increase bouncing.
A heavy tank-destroyer design based on the 8.8 cm Pak 43 gun and the Panther tank chassis was ordered in late 1942 as design SdKfz 173. Production started in January 1944. In February, Hitler specified the Jagdpanther name.
To accommodate the heavier-caliber gun, much as on previous Jagdpanzer-style unturreted tank-destroyers, the glacis plate and sides of the Jagdpanther were extended up into an integral, turretless fixed-casemate as part of the main hull itself to provide a roomy interior. The Jagdpanther had side armor of increased thickness to offset the slightly reduced angle of the side armor necessary to provide enough interior space. The new (April 1944) Panther Ausf. G had the same feature, to harmonize production and increase protection.
It was armed with an anti-tank version of the same long-barreled 8.8 cm gun as the Tiger II "King Tiger" and a single 7.92 mm MG-34 machine gun in the front glacis plate for local defence. The Jagdpanther had a good power-to-weight ratio and a powerful main gun, which enabled it to destroy any type of Allied tank. Based on the existing Panther chassis, the vehicle did not suffer too many mechanical problems: it had an upgraded transmission and final drive to counter the Panther's main weakness. It was manned by a crew of 5; a driver, radio-operator, commander, gunner, and loader.
Two main variants can be distinguished; the earlier (1944 model) G1 with a small internally-bolted main gun mantlet and a modified Panther A engine deck, and the later (1945 model) G2 with a larger, outside-bolted mantlet and a modified Panther G engine deck, though late G1s also had the larger mantlet. Early Jagdpanthers had two vision openings for the driver, whereas late versions had only one. The main gun originally had a monobloc gun barrel, but later versions were equipped with the Pak 43/4 gun with a 2-part barrel. Early G1s (to September 1944) were coated with the distinctive resin paste 'zimmerit' in a distinctive 'small-squared' pattern.
ProductionA total of 415 Jagdpanthers were produced from January 1944 by three manufacturers. MIAG produced 270 from January 1944 until the end. Maschinenfabrik Niedersachsen-Hannover (MNH) produced 112 from November 1944. Maschinenbau und Bahnbedarf (MBA) produced 37 vehicles from December 1944. They equipped heavy anti-tank battalions and served mainly on the Eastern Front, although significant numbers were concentrated in the west for the Ardennes Offensive. They were first encountered in the west in very small numbers late in the Battle of Normandy, where the German 654 schwere Panzerjäger-Abteilung ("654th Heavy Antitank Battalion") deployed about 12 Jagdpanthers against British units.
