Jagdtiger is a German tank destroyer.

Description

Based on the chassis of Tiger II, the Jagdtiger is even more heavily armed and armoured than its derived tank.

The Jagdtiger's 12.8 cm PaK 44 L/55 gun can destroy or heavily damage most vehicles in one hit. It is also very deadly to enemy infantry thanks to its shells' explosive impact.

For self-defense against infantry, an MG 34 is mounted in the front hull for the second position. There is also an MG 42 on anti-aircraft mount on the rear engine deck, which allows much greater firing angle at the expense of cover.

It can be found in maps set from late 1944 onwards, such as 4411-The Roer Plains, 4503-Alps and 4504-Mouse Roars.

Trivia

The model represents the Henschel suspension variant with nine road wheels per side.
