The Panzer IV/70 was essentially an upgraded JagdPanzer IV fitted with the same 75mm gun as carried on the Panther. This give the vehicle excellent anti armour capability but the hull machine gun was deleted, making it more vulnerable to infantry assault. Most Panzer IV/70's were purpose built and looked like the JagdPanzer IV, with the low profile and sloped armour but with a longer gun. However, in an effort to increase numbers of vehicles with the more powerful gun, it was decided to convert a number of Panzer IV tanks. This meant building up a superstructure on top of the existing hull, instead of fitting a turret. This gave the Panzer IV/70 (A) a taller more boxy appearance. Both versions of the Panzer IV/70 entered service in late 1944 and proved to be excellent tank destroyers
