German Assault Gun - StuG III Ausf. G
The Sturmgeschütz III (StuG III) assault gun was Germany's second most-produced armoured fighting vehicle during World War II after the Sd.Kfz. 251 half-track. It was built on the chassis of the proven Panzer III tank, replacing the turret with an armored, fixed superstructure mounting a more powerful gun. Initially intended as a mobile assault gun for direct-fire support for infantry, the StuG III was continually modified, and much like the later Jagdpanzer, was employed as a tank destroyer.
From May 1943, side hull spaced armour plates (Schürzen) were fitted to G models; these were primarily intended for protection against Russian anti-tank rifles, but were also useful against hollow-charge ammunition. Mountings for the Schürzen proved to be inadequate, as many were lost in the field. From March 1944, an improved mounting was introduced; as a result, side skirts are seen more often with late model Ausf G.
This 28mm scale StuG III Ausf. G Assault Gun is 3D printed in PLA plastic in four parts. Perfect scale for games of Bolt Action / Konflikt '47. This model is split into tracks, hull and main gun. Some CA glue (superglue) will cement them in place. Printed at 0.1 layer height to minimise layer lines.
