Tank Destroyers Of The Week.

The Russian approach- and SU100 with a 100 mm gun.

The German approach- a JagdTiger, with a 128 mm gun, the thickest and heaviest armour to see active service in any meaningful sense. 88 of these were built.

Again, a German approach; the Hetzer was built in captured Czechoslovakia by Skoda, and combined many useful qualities in the service of evil.

The American approach; an M10 tank destroyer in Winter camouflage.

A couple of sixties British hard-hitters; punching way out of their class due to guided missiles.

A HUGE British tank destroyer from world war 2, which never saw service because it kept demolishing roads and bridges. Even the side skirts are about three inches thick.
