E ither gun is as capable as the other. Little thought on either side was put into providing the slower moving foot soldiers with sh propelled artillery or anti tank capabilities. The culmination of big-gun German and Soviet tank destroyer design can be found in their clashes in Hungary in the spring of A few SU were delivered to Yugoslavia after the ssu, under the designation M Finally, having an operational range twice that of the Jagdpanther doesn’t seem like it could possibly be bad, though this is certainly less important for a defensive vehicle than for an offensive vehicle.

SU is my favorite tank.

Funny that I just now saw this thread. The Jagdpanther represented a well-balanced solution and an excellent use of limited resources, while the SU was a natural progression of the rudimentary but jagdpanthdr SU The side armor is again better on the Jagdpanther, both in base thickness and angle.
Most effective fire is from meters” Now, obviously an SU is neither an IS-2 nor an ISU, however the DS has similar ballistic performance to the DT, so there is no reason to think that the SU could not also be effective opening fire between m.
Martin Landry rated jagdpsnther liked it Aug 06, Still haven’t received one real life opinion. I’m never happy to see a SU-anything because it’s usually the last thing I see.

Edited December 29, by RocketTurtle. Still though, there was enough testing information and battlefield analysis of both rounds, to draw a fair conclusion as to the performance of both. The combat performance looks to be the same for either vehicle, effective range is the same, accuracy is the same, armour protection is the same, etc. Archived jahdpanther the original PDF on 4 October Search Advanced Search section: I’ve used the SU the mm is amazing on it!
A rapid arms race resulted in the East with each side attempting to develop a battlefield edge, if only for a limited time. That’s the biggest factor over which is better. The Soviet testers were surprised by this as they expected a 30 mm plate to withstand a 45 mm shell at such a low impact velocity, so they had a local factory build them an identical test plate.
Matthew, I’d like to introduce you to Wehraboo Bingo.

For better ventilation two ventilator units were installed, instead of only one as in the SU SU 8 votes [ And sure enough, the first 32 pages of the book kagdpanther indeed describe these two vehicles: It is known that German armour had as much as twice the strength to thickness as allied armour, including the Russians.
All in all, both are strong frontally for the WWII era, but are very weak everywhere else. The glacis of both is essentially angled the same, where as the superstructure front of the SU is a half dozen degrees better angled.
