German Jadgpanzer 'Elefant' Ferdinand

In terms of kills per loss, the Ferdinand/Elefant might well have been the most successful tank destroyer during war II, with an average ratio of approximately 10:1. During the Battle of Kursk, the sPzJagAbt 653 claims to have knocked out 320 enemy tanks, for the price of 13 Ferdinands. This was due to its extreme firepower and protection, which gave it an enormous advantage when used in head-on combat or a static defensive role.
