Panzer IV/70

Recommended Posts

The Jagdpanzer IV series had one or two internally stowed MG42s. When needed for close defense, the conical cover in the front superstructure would be pivoted, revealing an opening in which the machine gun would be inserted for firing (early vehicles had twin conical firing ports, as well as two MG42s). AFAIK, there was never a hard-mounted MG on the vehicle, and it was also unusual that the machine gun normally carried was the MG42, rather than the MG34, the machine gun normally equipping panzers.
