Description

Germany's versatile Stug III was based on the durable Panzer III chassis, the Stug III featured a monoblock structure with an L24 75mm short barrelled gun mounted directly to the hull, eliminating the revolving turret and reducing overall height. The Ausf.B was the first truly mass produced Stug III with 250 produced from June 1940. Featuring wide tracks and powered by a 230hp Maybach HL 120 TRM engine the Ausf. B boasted a top speed of 40km/h. The Ausf.B saw action during the Balakans campaign in April 1941 and Operation Barbarossa in June, 1941. The simple construction leading to low costs and easy mass production made the Stug III one of Germany's most produced armoured vehicles with over 10,000 produced during WWII.

  • Features a pre-coated die-cast lower hull for added weight and realism.
  • Cannon can be raised and lowered after assembly.
  • Includes 3 sets of markings.
