Comment on the bold...

Not sure it was. Do you have any documented evidence that is the case? I ask, because I always understood that the reason for making tank destroyers, like the Jagdpanther, was down to larger gun and low profile from not needing a turret, which was a cost versus benefit payoff.

Since WW2 there have been remarkably few Jagdpanther like tank destroyer designs.
One cannot always win but one cannot always lose either.
