German Tank Destroyers

German military strategy in WW2 heavily relied on tank destroyers, beginning with the Panzerjäger I Ausf B, which was mounted on a Panzer I chassis and armed with a Czech 47mm gun. As the war progressed, especially during Operation Barbarossa, the need for more formidable tank destroyers led to the development of the Marder series, utilizing various chassis like the French Lorraine and the Panzer 38(t), equipped with weapons such as the PaK 40. Subsequent designs incorporated chassis from German tanks like the Panzer IV and Tiger, reflecting the evolution of German tank destroyer capabilities.
