The Tank destroyer - this was a vehicle which was created specifically to fight against enemy tanks. During WW2, German and US engineers had different approaches to destroying enemy vehicles. Thick frontal armour, which was mounted at an increased angle, would make the German self-propelled vehicles invulnerable to enemy shells. The Americans relied on the high maneuverability of their tank destroyers - highly mobile and light armoured vehicles moved quickly to the enemy flanks and rear positions, destroying enroute, enemy vehicles with powerful cannons.

We invite you to take a part in the duel of these two schools of engineering, who used two different approaches when creating a tank destroyer - Germany and the USA. Our duellists - M36 GMC, Super Hellcat, M18 “Black Cat”, M18 Hellcat against Panzer IV/70(V), Panzer IV/70(A), Bfw.Jagdpanther and Jagdpanther.

Who will be victorious? Let’s find out!
