The Hetzer, was based on the captured Czech 38 light tank. To get more use out of the design, the Germans modified them into tank-destroyers. Armed with a 3in Pak 39 L/48 anti-tank gun and a 7.92 MG42. Even during the last month of the war, about 120 Hetzer were delivered to the German army. After WWII the Hetzer was used by the Czech Army and Switzerland and remained in Swiss service until 1970.
