If you ever needed a really cool tank model to destroy all those other tanks then look no further than the Hetzer Tank Destroyer.
It’s 75 mm PaK 39 L/48 gun was able to destroy nearly all Allied or Soviet tank types in service at long ranges (with the exception of heavy tanks) and its fully enclosed armour protection made it a safer vehicle to crew than the open-topped Marders.
The Hetzer mounted a remote-controlled machine gun atop the fighting compartment which could be fired from within the vehicle. Whilst this proved very popular with the Hetzer’s crews it did need reloading from the exterior of the vehicle.
Not only that… it looks really cool and is perfect for a conversion!
