New Volume Nuts Bolts Vol.38 Jagdpanzer IV Part 2: L/70 (Sd.Kfz. 162/1) (VOMAG & ALKETT)

Nuts & Bolts have announced their next issue in their excellent series of books. If you want to know about the Jagdpanzer IV L/48 (Sd.Kfz. 162) in depth, then this is the second book for you. Part 1 is already published.

As previously announced we continue with part 2 on the history of the Jagdpanzer IV. This describes the two versions developed by the companies VOMAG and ALKETT; both types were armed with the 7.5 cm Pak 42 L/70, an anti-tank gun that derived from the famous gun of the Panther. If you take into account that the series production of both versions did not commence until August 1944, it is really surprising that by the end of the war (only 8 months later,) 970 VOMAG and 277 ALKETT vehicles with this armament were built. However, both versions had no major impact on the course of the war.
