Volume 38 is the next book in the series of two books from Nuts & Bolts. Devoted to the VOMAG and ALKETT versions with the 7.5 cm Pak 42 L/70 and the Einheitsfahr- gestell, all versions of this formidable vehicle will be included in the standard of information that Nuts & Bolts fans have become used to.
Both types of Jagdpanzer IV's were armed with the 7.5 cm Pak 42 L/70, an anti-tank gun that derived from the famous gun of the Panther.
 If you take into account that the series production of both versions did not commence until August 1944, it is really surprising that by the end of the war (only 8 months later) 970 VOMAG and 277 ALKETT vehicles with this armament were built. However, both versions had no major impact on the course of the war.
