issue nr 3 of today: the so called Nashorn, armed with a flak 88 cannon and used on all major fronts from 1943 till 1945, designed only for killing allied tanks..this tankhunter first saw action in the summer of 1943, in 1943 the Wehrmacht still had a lack of heavy tanks end they needed a quick solution, on the top of a panzer4 chassis they build a 88 cannon that was strong enough to penetrate the armour of the heavy russian tanks, it did his job good, but there where some problems..first: the Nashorn had only light armour, 10 mm on superstructure, 30mm hull...and was easy to penetrate for allied tanks, second: the roof was open, that made the crew vulnereble for infantry weapons etc..maybe a good idea to use this tank for the mod, in total there were 500 produced and served untill end of the war..
