not sure in real life if these 2 clashed but i think the IS2 needs to be better against it,I died in 2 shots from a jagdpanther in the front i didnt actually die but my engine shut off.Now the IS2 has a 122mm cannon it blew a shell right thorugh a panther so im guessing the jagdpanther is tougher?Btw i did a test and the jagdpanther is tougher than a tiger and according,also to fh's main vech page it has the same gun as a kingtiger,plz correct me out here.

Jagdpanther has 88mm gun (going by wwiivehicles.com). The front armor of the IS2 is like 120mm. I don't know the penetration values, I'm sure Anlushac will set things all straight. Anyhow the gun on the jagdpanther is a formidable gun and is for anti-tanking. The IS2's main gun isn't for anti-tanking and it's the same chassis as the Kv1, maybe up-armored?

I hear some ppl say the jagdpanther is bugged and dies too easily.

Jagdpanther has same 80mm front upper hull armor as Panther, but it has the Tiger II's 88mm L/71 gun.

The problem is the IS-2's 122mm gun is not a good tank killer for its size, its basically a artillery gun and was used mostly as such in support of infantry. Its rated to penetrate 130mm at 30deg at 500m. It should knock hte Pantehr around pretty good but that 88mm L/71 will eat the IS-2 alive.

Umm, I may have missed something, but isn't Tank Destroyer meant to slaughter other tanks without problem, ingoring if they are heavy or light? And I think that the size of the barrel doesn't decide how good it is, it is what it shoot.

Wasted lets take the map Bocage. In the map Bocage there is 1 Jagdpanther, when used well, this jagdpanther does provide HEAVY losses to the Americans.. of course the air support the americans have depending on the indididual skill of the pilot is another piece of the cake.

The Jagpanther can easily kill the IS-2 when flanking and with diffculty from the front. They can also do so in game. Things are fine.

The Jagdpanzer IV/70 is the Vomag version and has 80mm front upper armor, same as Panther and Jagdpanther. It carries the same 75mm L/70 as the Panther which is probably the second most dangerous German tank gun in FH.

Its a brand new chassis. Otherwise it would have been a KV122 or something like that.
