  1. Jagdpanzer 38(t) Hetzer, is a famous late-war Jagdpanzer. On the very early version of Hetzer, it did got a muzzle brake, but such device was removed on later models. After war, Switzerland bought some Hetzer from Czechslovakia, named as G-13. Muzzle brake became standardise on G-13. But, have you ever seen a Hetzer with a muzzle brake like this? (below) Some source like Tanks-Encyclopedia describe this as "early production Hetzer with muzzle brake" but I really can't tell which German KwK or PaK have such British style muzzle brake, like those on Cromwell tanks. There are two possible reason for this strange version: 1. A very early Hetzer lost its muzzle brake and the crew found a British vehicle wreckage, ie. Cromwell or Churchill or even AEC armour car, took the muzzle brake as an ad-hoc replacement. 2. A very early Hetzer lost its main gun and the crew found a British QF 75 mm gun, and fit it into the gun cradle. The QF 75 mm gun uses exactly the same ammunition as the M3 75 mm gun. Further pics: Is there any evidence in Patton museum about this vehicle?
