The Revell Germany 1/72 SdKfz 173 Jagdpanther kit features detailed cannon, exhausts and parts to represent an early and late version.
The Jagdpanther (German: "hunting panther"), Sonderkraftfahrzeug (abbreviated Sd.Kfz.,German for "special purpose vehicle" or "special ordnance vehicle") 173, was a highly-successful tank destroyer built by Germany during World War II based on the chassis of the Panther tank. It entered service in 1944 during the later stages of the war on the Eastern and Western Fronts. The Jagdpanther combined the 8.8 cm Pak 43 cannon, similar to the main gun of the Tiger II, and the armor and suspension of the Panther chassis. During the last stages of the war, limited German production resulted in small production numbers, shortage of spare parts, and shortened crew training periods of younger operators.
