Armor Number 7
Panzerjäger (tank hunter) actually includes anyone who engages in seeking out and destroying enemy armor. The infantryman with his “Panzerfaust”, “Bazooka”, “Piat” or “Molotov cocktail”, the gunner behind his artillery or anti-tank gun as well as the Ju 87 D’s, HS 129’s or Stormoviks whose pilots engaged themself in the role of Panzerknacker (tank busters). The most famous and successful was Oberst Hans Ulrich Rudel who alone was credited with the destruction of over 500 Red Tanks while flying his 3.7cm Flak armed Junkers Ju 87 D.
In this volume however, it is our intention only to illustrate and discuss the weapon which was created for the sole purpose of seeking out and destroying enemy tanks, hunting for them, the PANZERJAGER and JAGDPANZER of the Second World War.
