The Kanonenjagdpanzer, also called Jagdpanzer, Kanone 90mm, was introduced into the German Bundeswehr in 1965 and replaced the U.S. American M41, M47 and M48 in tank destroyer units.

Its task was in the mobile defense to support the infantry in anti-tank defense. Its armament consisted of a 90 mm cannon and 2 7.62 mm machine guns. With its 500 hp (368 kW) engine, the almost 27-tonne vehicle reached a speed of around 70 km/h on the road.

As the armament proved to be too weak over time, some of the gun destroyers were converted to rocket destroyers and others to non-cannon observation/command tanks.
The tank destroyer served in non-active Homeland Security units until 1991.
