Default Re: The Hetzer Has A Russian Gun

StuG has a different gun look at images of a Jagdpanzer IV/48 - same gun as Hetzer (PaK 39) can be seen with and without a muzzle brake... This is because whilst it was originally fitted with a brake, they found it kicked up huge clouds of dust when fired, betraying it's position, as it was close to the ground... This is why the same gun on an even lower platform doesn't have the brake on it's muzzle.

Ask yourself 2 questions: why would the Germans fit an inferior Russian gun at this stage of the war? and why in almost 75 years of research you are the only person on the planet to think this?!
