The Nashorn, which means “rhinoceros” in German and was originally named the Hornisse, or “hornet,” was a World War II German Panzerjäger (tank hunter), designed in 1942 as a temporary solution. It utilized a lightly armored, turretless chassis derived from the Panzer III and Panzer IV tanks, housing the formidable 8.8 cm Pak 43 anti-tank gun. Despite its limited armor and conspicuous profile, the Nashorn possessed the capability to penetrate the frontal armor of Allied tanks from a considerable distance. Its relatively cost-effective production and superior mobility compared to heavier vehicles ensured its continuous manufacturing until the war’s conclusion.
