In Panzer Tracts No.7-1, the Panzer Tracts team presents an accurate, detailed history of these famous tank destroyers’ creation, production, and combat action.
This first book covers the initial attempts to create chassis specifically designed for self-propelled anti-tank guns (which did not reach mass production) and the resulting makeshift conversions that were used in combat. Altogether 12 different projects are covered, starting with the real Zwischenlösung, Krupp L.S.K., L.Tr.Sfl., 3.7 cm and 7.5 cm Sfl., Pz.Sfl.II, 8.8 cm Flak 18 Sfl., Pz.Sfl.IVa, Pz.Jäg.I, 4.7 cm Pak(t) auf Pz.Kpfw.35R, and ending with the rare trial Pz.Sfl.Ia and Pz.Sfl.Ic.
New as-built drawings, accurate to the same tolerances demanded of the original assembly firms, were created for both production series of the 4.7 cm Pak(t) (Sfl) auf Pz.Kpfw.I. This 72-page book is heavily illustrated with 17 scale drawings and 67 clear & rare large-format photos.
