NotesThe Panzer IV/70 (A) was another variation of the Jadgpanzer IV. It had a similar chassis to a standard Panzer Mk. IV and mounted the 75mm PaK 42. Its armour was similar to the Panzer IV/70 (V). The Panzer IV/70 (A) mainly served on the eastern front, with a few seeing action in France and Italy.
