G-13. The state of the register
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

Since we've got some complains from people in the USA who own a G-13 and pretend it's an Hetzer, based only on the fact that it has a gasoline engine, I took a look back at the PDF and noticed ASPHM Association's tank, well, that one too is a G-13 since it has the StuK 40 gun, not the KwK 39 gun. You can see it because the gun's barrel has a small conical section, just after the shield. If you look at an Hetzer you see the barrel is straight.

All of the 158 Swiss G13 had orginally a gasoline engine. They caused a lot of trouble and the Swiss decided only after 2-3 years to replace about 2/3 of the tanks with a Saurer V8-Diesel engine.

So "gasoline engine = Hetzer" is definitely wrong!

Greetings
Chris

PS By the way, all the 150 Swiss G13 had different chassis numbers than the Hetzers. Starting with number 1. Only the first batch of 8 had different chassis numbers than the other 150.

well, I read this article, and it says the AAAM Hetzer was fully restored to WW2 configuration, even the main gun is L/39.
