In December of 1944, 20 Hetzers were converted into flamethrowers - Flammpanzer 38(t) Hetzer for the upcoming Ardennes Offensive. Flame projector (14mm Flammenwerfer 41) was fitted in the standard barrel in order to camouflage its real role as flamethrower. All were attached to 352nd and 353rd Panzer-Flamm-Kompanie attached to Army Group G. In the early 1945, few Hetzers were rearmed with Panther"s 75mm KwK 42 L/70 in order to increase their hitting power. After tests this idea was rejected since the long barreled gun made the nose extremely heavy and entire vehicle less mobile and difficult to operate. Krupp also proposed to modify Hetzer into Panzerjaeger 38(t) mit 75mm L/70 - Hetzer mounted with new larger superstructure in the rear armed with 75mm L/70 gun.
