Final version of the Sd.Kfz. 162 Jagdpanzer IV/70 was a 25.8 tonne tank destroyer developed at the Vomag factory on the chassis of a Panzer IV Ausf.J armed with the powerful 7.5 cm L/70 KwK 42 gun of the Panther. With a new Saukopf type mantlet to better protect the characteristic gun, this version improved mobility by implementing two solid front wheels on the running gear and 3 return wheels. It also included a simplified engine with its two characteristic exhaust pipes replacing the large cylindrical exhaust of the PzIV G and H. Known as the Guderian Duck, the Jagdpanzer IV/70 proved to be an effective and fearsome adversary that formed the basis of the Panzerjaegers Abteilung of the armored divisions during the last stage of the war. It was also used to cover the needs of the Panzer regiments, short of Panther and Panzer IV tanks.
