The Sturmgeschutz III (StuG III) assault gun was Germany’s most produced armored fighting vehicle during World War II. It was built on the chassis of the proven Panzer III tank. Initially intended as a mobile, armored light gun for infantry support, the StuG was continually modified and was widely employed as a tank destroyer. The vehicles of the Sturmgeschutz series were cheaper to build than the contemporary German tanks. By the end of the war, 10,619 StuG III and StuH 42 had been built. The main gun was housed in the chassis and had only limited left-right adjustment; it did have sufficient elevation adjustment. The front of the vehicle was pointed at the target. The low silhouette combined simple production requirements and low cost to make this vehicle a valuable asset on the battlefield. Our highly detailed all metal model is armed with the long barreled 75mm gun. Hand assembled to match the same rustic, old toy feel of our popular metal airplanes. Static wheels.
