Panzer Tracts No.7-3: Panzerjäger (7.5cm Pak 40/4 to 8.8cm Waffenträger)
Panzer Tracts No.7-3: Panzerjäger: Panzer Tracts’ 37-year search for original records (created by those responsible for designing, producing, and using the Panzerjäger) has resulted in them uncovering the facts on their names (and correct nicknames) production, modification, issue, organisation, and frontline employment.
Hundreds of research hours went into accurately measuring survivors and finding previously overlooked modifications. The translated after-action reports provide a proper understanding of their combat value and the tactics needed for these thinly armoured, open-topped Panzerjäger to be successful.
