I don't remember a Jagdpanzer IV/70 in the show (it's been a while since I've seen it), but I seem to remember that the StuGs in the show were based on FV432 APCs (or possibly Abbot SPGs). They show up at military vehicle shows now. They're not perfect, but they do look the part and show care on the part of the producers.

Cheers,

Scott

Wasn't trying to rain on your parade! It is a neat bit of trivia, and not well-known. The BoB folks did a lot of good work trying to make the show feel 'right.'

Cheers,
