Introduce the Hetzer

Since OKW doctrinal slots are free now (MG42 slots) I´d like to suggest the introduction of the standard Hetzer.

- It would fit perfectly fine into the Fortification doctrine of OKW. It doesn´t have to be in Luftwaffe.

- It wouldn´t be much effort since the model already exists.

- It could still be different from the Jagdpanzer IV, giving it less range and lower cost + the top MG. It´s gun could be more comparable to the StuG in performance.

- It would make the Fortifications doctrine more attractive than a copy pasted ability.

- It was the most common tank hunter the Germans had at the end of the war. Would perfectly fit the OKW.

What are your thoughts?

JP4 exists already for OKW and StuG for Ost.

100% role overlap.

If the Hetzer does not overlap with JP4, then it would definitely overlap with Puma. yes you can argue it's an in-between, but that's not relevant since no one needs such an in-between in the first place.

If anyone would like to test a Hetzer tank destroyer, here's a mod.

The Hetzer TD comes from the Battlegroup Headquarters and costs roughly as much as the Flame Hetzer. It's a slightly more expensive Stug with a gimmick. Please don't expect it to be anywhere near balanced. :)

Hetzer just feels like a unit that has no niche in an army that already has the Puma and the JP4.

i like the hetzer for some reason. There's just something cute about its shape and the way it looks. Has to be my favourite ww2 vehicle. Makes me a bit sad, theres only that crappy flame thrower one in this game. :[
