Jagdpanzer 4-5 with developer's answers
Vyacheslav Bulannikov, Game-designer:
A post-war SPG built on components of the HS 30 armoured transport. The SPG is armed with a 90mm cannon and uses post-war ammunition. This SPG’s small dimensions and high mobility give it a maximum speed of 70 km/h, allowing it to take the most advantageous positions on the map. However, frontal combat against tier 5 tanks is probably not a good idea due to its weak armour. On the whole, the SPG will play more like the Leopard than other vehicles of the the German nation
Svetlana Smirnova, Artist:
The SPG has a low profile, which gives it a good chance to make it a difficult target for the enemy. And it looks truly frightening.

Answers to readers' questions:
1. Why have you incorrectly labelled this is the Jagdpanzer 4-5 when all sources point to it being the KanonenJadgpanzer or Jagdpanzer Kanonen 90mm?
