The almost-vertical front hull plate was replaced by sloped armor plates and internally, the layout was changed to accommodate the new superstructure, moving the fuel tanks and ammunition racks. Since the Jagdpanzer lacked a turret, the engine which originally powered the Panzer IVs turret could be eliminated.The new superstructure had 80 mm thick sloped armor, which gives a much greater armor protection than a vertical armor of 100 mm. To make the manufacturing process as simple as possible, the superstructure was made out of large, interlocking plates which were welded together.Containing dozens of archive black and white and color photos, including 15 pages of close-up and walk around shots, and 4 pages of color artwork profiles, this is an ideal reference for both the enthusiast and modeler, with free decals included.About the SeriesPhotosniper is a classic series of highly illustrated photo books on the best machines of war, creating, with numerous images, a close-up, walk-around view for each aircraft or vehicle.
