    I believe the Nashorn (or Hornisse) was the first time the incredible PaK43 (or variant) was mounted in a vehicle, the others major employments being Jagdpanther, Elefant/Ferdinand, and of course Tiger II

    Versions of this gun were mounted in a number of German armored vehicles under different designations, including:
    - Hornisse/Nashorn Pak 43/1
    - Ferdinand/Elefant Pak 43/2
    - Jagdpanther Pak 43/3 and Pak 43/4
    - Tiger II heavy tank KwK 43 L/71

    There is by the way, one currently being restored in the following blog - https://www.facebook.com/Nashorn.SD.....restauration/
    i find these restorations very interesting.

    I found the comments after the above article to be more interesting than the article itself
