The skoda plant continued to produce Hetzers after the war and captured Hetzers were also used. Sweden, Czech, Hungry, Russia and it's Warsaw pact countries in fact used them post war.
 
This makes a interesting vehicle for the Czech TD tank tree as well as the Swedish line that will be coming out.  It is also a possible premium tank for all theses countries.

Jpz 38t wasn't called "Hetzer" outside of maybe one unit. The most common postwar user of the Jpz 38t design was the Swiss with the G13

I used the Hetzer name because people are far more familiar with it.

Would like to see the Maresal as a premium TD though.

This is the Hetzer:

Spoiler

and this is the Jpz 38t (specifically the Starr rigid recoil prototype):

I would kind of like to see it come out as a premium of one country or another besides Germany. Heck WG even gave the german's the Turin !

Because back when documentation was being found about the Jpz 38t, some information about the E-10 was found as well and they thought that the "Hetzer" name was referring to the Jpz 38t and not the E-10.

I've been quietly hoping the Swiss one would be made into a premium for a while now...

What makes people think there will be a Swiss line?? Because if they were planning one it doesn't seem to make sense that they'd put the first Swiss tank into the German tech tree.

Huh.  Interesting.  Can't help but notice the Hetzer/E-10 looks like an E-25 and Foch had a baby.

The first British tanks were in the Russian line and still are (Churh 3, Matilda 4, Tetrarch, etc.)

I'm rather surprised they haven't done it already...

WG has wreaked WoT with all their post-WW2 additions to this game.

There wouldn't be a Chinese, Czech or French line past tier 5 without this.

Even the Japanese line past tier 7 is post-WW2.

Still waiting for the Italians (who should be next)

Still waiting for all the other minor European Nations tanks (including Sweden).

WoT has plenty of options for including low tier tanks - the problems begin at the higher tiers.

Note how many 'Russian regurgitations' are currently in game.

They were trying to get the suspension implemented but shelved it.

WoT has never been strictly about WWII. I suppose you have no issues with the IS-7, IS-4, T-10, T30/34/29, T32, T95, T92, and M46? Congrats, you're a hypocrite because all of those are postwar

<Google> Ah, the suspension could be jacked up/down? I'd forgotten that.

Presumably, they'll have similar fun if they ever try and implement the S-Tank...

well the e-10 "Hetzer" is another fantasy TD that appears unlikely to see the light of day due to it's novel suspension.  Too bad really.. "bird in the hand.." so I will take the swiss g-13 myself :)
