Some random comments on reddit about Jagdtiger production plant in Germany 1945.
- I think 77 were produced.
- Only a couple dozen at most saw combat.
- Otto Carius (who JUST died) commanded a detachment.
- Shame that his skill counted for very little when the crews he was commanding were poorly trained, leading to the losses of most of the vehicles.
- A lot.
- Then why was the Elefant the most effective tank destroyer in the war? These guys have a bigger gun and more armour, and they fill the same role.
- Also less reliable. You're looking at an already underpowered chassis with more weight on it, built to 1945 standards.
- It uses the same chassis as the Tiger B, which I can see being underpowered but at the same time looks like a completely new design incorporating the sloped armour idea. Was it underpowered too?
- It was essentially a slightly lengthened Koenigstiger (Tiger II, Tiger B) chassis with the superstructure added in the middle. The extra length was for the crazy big breech of the 28cm gun.
- You mean the 128 mm gun.
- Lol my bad, you're right of course. Don't know where that came from. Read more comments
