The StuG III was a well-armed and armoured vehicle bases on the tired and tested Pz.Kpfw III chassis. As it was considered a mobile howitzer, it was originally manned by the artillery. It went through many variants during the Second World War and was indeed one of the few German AFVs to serve throughout the war on all fronts. It had good frontal armour and its low profile made it great for performing ambushes and presenting a poor target for return fire. The StuG was armed with a powerful and efficient 75mm gun that carries and MG42 for close defence. They were welcomed by their infantry comrades supporting their attacks with HE shells or knocking out enemy tanks.
This highly detailed plastic kit can be built as either the StuG III Ausf G assault gun or the 10.5cm Sturmhaubitze infantry support gun.
