Unlikely, but if so, it will be months if not years away...
So don't get your hopes up too much

While I would definately like to see it ingame I doubt it will ever be included. The thing saw limited use in 44/45 (rather 45) with fewer than 90 units produced - and then just on the Western Front. It would be more appropriate for a defense of Germany map. During the Ardennes offensive they were in Saarbrücken/Germany in reserve. Shortly after the Ardennes Offensive most Jagdtigers were stationed further south in the Elsass (Unternehmen Nordwind). Then shit hit the fan and everything collapsed, some were used in the Ruhr-Poket if I´m not mistaken, where Carius commanded a small group of Jagdtigers.

So, no... I doubt we will see them. Definately not on any of the current maps.

probably not, we've got enough already to kill off every allied tank the devs throw at us, however, the russian tanks might prove to be a challenge

Jagdtigers were used on the late Eastern Front too, for example in the battle of Budapest and elsewhere in Hungary.

Then tell me your source.  ::) Parts of the sPzJägAbt 512 could have fought in Hungary aswell. I cant find a source to prove this as is cant find a source to disqualify it. I guess the Reich`s administration in late 1944/45 wasn`t the best anymore.

Ein gewisser Oberfeldwebel Heinz Grein wurde von Scherf im Januar 1945 abkommandiert zum Niebelungenwerk. Er sollte halt die Produktion der JT beobachten.

Er übernahm am 29.04.1945 mindestens 9 JT und zog gegen die Russen bei Prinzersdorf.
Er war der 6.SS-PzA unterstellt.

In January 1945, Staff Sergeant Heinz Grein was assigned by Scherf to the Nibelungenwerk. On April 29th 1945 he took  at least 9 Jagdtigers and fought against the soviets near Prinzersdorf. He was subordinated to the 6th SS-Panzerabteilung.

only 65 of the 88 jagdtigers saw the front line. 15 where equipped with the 88mm L71 but had no sights and where not used.

Then devide them up to 2 fronts.......

When 512 and 653 got their Jagdtiger, they were sent to the western front. The other abteilung ended up in the Ruhr pocket, the other was n Austria when the war ended. [Lexikon der Wehrmacht]
