WWII STURMGESCHUTZ III.

 

The box contains parts to make two STURMGESCHUTZ III. The set number is 99018. This is in mint condition sold as new. There are two tanks in each box designed to be assembled quickly for war gaming purposes. Despite the simple assembly, the mouldings are crisp and accurate, enabling you to field large armour formations at a reasonable price. Please note that the box art on this item has recently changed. The kit still includes the side skirts shown on the old box art as shown in the gallery picture. We have one copy of the old style box in stock. If you have a specific requirement for the box art, let us know. Other wise you will receive a random selection. However, as mentioned the kit sprues are identical. 

The Sturmgeschütz (StuG) III was one of a series of assault guns/tank destroyers produced by the Germans during the war. Assault guns were easier, cheaper and less time consuming to produce than turreted tanks and that is why German factories built them in large numbers. Ausf G entered production in December of 1942 and remained in production until March/April of 1945. It was the most numerous from all Sturmgeschutz III guns and with almost 8,000 being produced and was based on the Panzer 3 chassis.

The Ausf G version had the StuK40 L/48 gun as standard making it an effective tank killer a role that, as the war progressed, they were required to fill more and more. The StuG III assault guns gave the German Army a relatively simple armoured and very mobile gun. They were highly successful, if somewhat outclassed by the end of the war
