Comparing: Dicker Max vs. Jagdpanzer IV vs. Nashorn
The Dicker Max ("Fat Max") was initially intended to destroy bunkers. Two prototypes were built in the spring of 1941. Later the vehicle was redesignated a heavy tank destroyer. The design was never put into mass production, but the prototypes fought on the Eastern Front.
The Pz. IV medium tank served as the basis for many vehicles, including tank destroyers. At the end of 1944, a version of the 75-mm PaK 42 L/70 gun was prepared for this basis. The new variant of the vehicle was designated the JagdPzIV/70. From August 1944 through March 1945, the Nibelungenwerke company produced 278 vehicles of this type.
The official designation of the Nashorn ("Rhinoceros") tank destroyer was 8.8 cm PaK 43/1 auf Geschützwagen III/IV (Sf). The vehicle was designated the Hornisse ("Hornet") until 1944. Produced on the same chassis as the Hummel heavy SPG. The vehicle first saw combat on the Eastern Front in the summer of 1943. A total of 494 vehicles were manufactured.
