About the Nashorn:
The Nashorn, one version of which was also known as the Hornisse was a German tank destroyer of World War II. It was developed as an interim solution in 1942 and was armed with a 8.8 cm anti-tank gun. Though only lightly armoured and with a high profile, it stayed in service until the end of the war and proved to be quite successful as a tank destroyer.
