Product Description

WH083 “Sturmgeschutz III

The ‘Stug III’ assault gun was Germany’s most-produced (over 10,000 vehicles) armoured fighting vehicle of WW2.  It was built on the chassis of the already-proven Panzer III tank, replacing the turret with an armoured, fixed superstructure mounting a more powerful gun.

Although originally intended as a mobile assault gun to support infantry it was continually modified and improved to become a tank destroyer.

Our latest Ausf. G model is in typical late-war camouflage and mounts a 7.5cm main gun as well as a 7.92 mm MG34 machine gun complete with armoured shield.

Two crew figures are provided as well an extra machine gun and shield should the collector wish to display the vehicle in a non-fighting mode.  2 x radio antennas are also attached.

Airborne Divisions. As news arrived of the British landings Arnhem Garrison Commander General Friedrich Kussin drove to the area to assess for himself the situation. Fatally for him and his companions in his staff car he drove directly into an advancing platoon of British paratroopers led by Lieut. “Jimmy” Cleminson of 3 Para. A concentrated barrage of rifle and machine gun fire soon ended the General’s inspection tour… More about Operation Market Garden: http://www.kingandcountry.com/operation-market-garden-c-79_49.html
