Belgian JPK 90.

Belgian JPK 90.
Based on World War 2 experience with different tank destroyers, the newly founded German Bundeswehr (1956) considered these vehicles as indispensable in anti-tank warfare against the Warsaw Pact. However, it took ten years before their Kanonenjagdpanzer entered service.
In the early seventies, the Belgian Army needed to improve their anti-tank capabilities. The Army still had a huge amount of 90 mm ammunition due to the replacement of the M47 Patton by the Leopard 1, so the KaJaPa was considered. A new Renk transmission plus suspension, final drive and tracks (all used on the Marder IFV) greatly improved the cross-country manoeuvrability of the JPK90. It also used a version of the Leopard’s Cobelda fire control system, turning it into a highly effective tank hunter.
This Model Foto Focus takes a thorough look around this little-documented but interesting machine. For the modeller, this is the ultimate walkaround for an accurate model. For the armour enthusiast, it describes the JPK90 in great detail.
With approximately 200 photographs.
