An altered suspension was designed for the RK 9 chassis, only a few of which were completed for trials before the project was abandoned. During the middle of the campaign in Poland, on 15 September lnspektorat 6 ordered the Waffenamt to start development of a full-tracked gepanzerte Aufklaerungsfahrzeug armored recon- naissance vehicle.
This order initiated the VK Contracts were also awarded to both B. All three had large diameter roadwheels, but only the VK Two of these projects were canceled after extensive testing of the few trial vehicles that had been produced. The third project - the Luchs -was reduced from an initial order for to an actual production series run ofonly In the middle of the war, in , the German army still didn't have a half-tracked or full-tracked armored reconnaissance vehicle in mass production.
Two examples of this approach were the le. At first the Sd. Then in , the 2 em Haengelafette suspended mount with mm- thick front armor was adopted for both the Sd. While only 70 Sd. Refer to Panzer Tracts for details on other tracked reconnaissance vehicle projects like the Panzer-Aufklaerer auf 38t and the Aufklaerer 38D that didn't make it past the drawing board. The Halbketten Fahrgestell half-track chassis was known as the H 8 H- the first H for Hanomag, the 8 for the 8th design in the series, and the last H for Hinten rear.
The engine, cooling system, and transmission were mounted at the rear of the chassis instead ofthe more conventional method of positioning these components at the front. However, the differential steering unit and drive sprockets were still located at the front of the tracked section of the suspension like its predecessor the HL kl 6. Due to the requirement for higher speed, the firm of Maybach was contracted to produce a more powerful engine than the metric horsepower NL 38 used in the predecessor design.
Initially rated at metric horsepower at rpm, the water-cooled, 6-cylinder Maybach HL 49 TRWS gasoline engine had a bore of 95 mm and a stroke of mm - resulting in a swept volume of 4. An advanced-design, speed pre-selective SRG transmission was also created by Maybach.
Like its predecessor the HL kl 6, the H 8 H had a torsion bar suspension with six pairs of rubber-tired roadwheels per side. The Zgw. Due to the offset caused by the transversely mounted torsion bar suspension, there were 55 track links on the left side and 56 track links on the right.
On 8 May , the Waffenamt reported that 24 s. Hlbkett under contract were still to be delivered. At some point an additional six H 8 H chassis were ordere.
The HL 54 was simply the HL 49 bored out to mm in order to achieve metric horsepower at rpm. In the interim, it had been determined that the HL 49 could only achieve metric horsepower at rpm. As reported by Hanomag- postwar in a total of30 HSH chassis were produced, with the first vehicles tested in March At this time, after being tested for acceptance by Waffenamt inspectors, the completed chassis were sent to a differ- ent assembly plant for bolting the armor body onto the chassis frame, mounting the turret, and outfitting the interior with equipment, tools, and ammunition stowage racks.
While sufficient data has been found to prove that the chassis were produced, there hasn't been a single document found on the design, production, or assembly of the armor bodies or turrets to be mounted on the H 8 H chassis.
The reports on the various types of four, six, and eight.

Nor have any reports been found that confirm that these schwere Panzerspaeh- wagen Halbketten were issued to a Panzerspaeh- kompanie armored reconnaissance company of an Aufklaerungs-Abteilung reconnaissance battalion. Therefore, we are left with a major gap in the history of these armored reconnaissance vehicles. What happened to these 30 H 8 H chassis?
What was the shape of the armor body that was designed for them? What turret and armament were to be mounted on the armor body? What unit were they issued to - if they were completed? Are photos avail- able from the veterans but they haven't been identi- fied? The conjectural sketch that appears on the opposite page was created as an aid to identify one of these schwerer Panzerspaehwagen Halbketten Fgst.
The unit history section covers all unit briefly as well as the organization but the section is mostly photos.
Most of the photos in the book are known but they are a very good selection of photos. The shipments section consisted of basically a Shipments chart which also seem to have some new information, though again not studied. The last section is also an interesting section on the Pz. IV munitionspanzer with a few photos. The best thing about the book for me was one photo that changed an opinion I had about a certain configuration.
This is the first time that "as-built" drawings of the Jagdpanther have been created to the same exacting tolerances demanded of the original producers. This was achievable only through hard work because original detailed drawings for most of the external Jagdpanther components did not survive. It took: In addition, it is sometimes difficult to obtain dimensions of parts that are drawn at the angles in which they were actually mounted on a Panzer.
To aid the modeler and enhance the display of details, many components and parts have been redrawn to create multiple-dimension views on flat planes. Unfortunately, many of the drawings and reports on minor modifications did not survive.

Therefore, we have developed a systematic approach to identifying when modifications were introduced into a production series. Original documents, photographs, and surviving Jagdpanthers are care- fully examined to identify the externally visible changes even on the belly. It is also very important to identify by Fgst. One must be diligent in comparing museum Panthers with wartime photographs to ensure that parts in museums haven't been altered or replaced with postwar equipment.
All of this hard work paid off in new discoveries, such as: G1 with Panzerwanne B and an Ausf. We prefer to use the space available to provide a much more useful product.
Please go to our website panzertracts. This accurate, detailed history of the develop- ment, production, and employment of the Jagd- panthers has been based solely on the content of primary source documents written during the war by those who participated in the design, production, and employment of ,the Jagdpanthers.

Fabulous insight into the strengths and weak- nesses of the Jagdpanther in action in and is gained from the few surviving experience reports written by schwere Panzer-Jaeger unit commanders. Hauptmann Noak reveals that Jagdpanthers were actually being penetrated by hits on the glacis plate at short range from tank and anti-tank guns in the West in late An Oberleutnant commanding s.
G1 and G2, Fgst. IVc are being built.
It is intended to increase the gun performance by mounting an 8. Acceptance of this model by the army hasn't been concluded, because the original purpose of using this self-propelled gun as a Schartenbrecher bunker buster against the Maginot Line has been outdated.
The armor of the Pz. IVc is not thick enough to provide adequate protection of the crew for it to be employed in offensive combat. In part this design has been szirpassed by the VK Panzers from Porsche and Henschel for which we are designing the turret as well as the future 80 to 90 ton schweren Kamp wagen with a 8.
A single Pz. IVc was actually completed as a self-propelled anti-aircraft gun and sent to Italy for troop trials in refer to Panzer Tracts No. Since it hadn't been mentioned in the above report for fiscal year ending September , preliminary discussions between Krupp and Wa Pruef 6 on the conceptual design for a heavily armored 8.
But these preliminary discussions must have occurred in late , since Krupp had already prepared conceptual drawings by early January Krupp A.
Wa Pruef 6 agreed with the overall layout of the vehicle.
At a meeting in Berlin on 21 January , Woelfert presented two conceptual drawings of a Pz. IVc2 mit 8.Finally in September , In 6 authorized Wa Pruef to begin development of a full-tracked car- rier that could deliver 1 ton kg in the vehicle, kg in a trailer of ammunition to the front-line troops across all types of terrain.
Smaller detail are described and drawn with such items as the cut-outs for the periscopes and the skid used as a replacement for the return roller fitted on some Panthers.
