The StuG.III has the distinction of being Germany’s most widely produced AFV of WWII, with 10,619 eventually manufactured. Based on the chassis of the Panzer III, it was cheaper and faster to build since it did not have a rotating turret. The Ausf.E, equipped with short-barreled 75mm StuK37 L/24 gun, was produced from September 1941 through to March 1942. Some 272 rolled off Germany’s factory floors in that period.
This new StuG.III Ausf.E boasts a many great new parts, like complete new superstructure roof, engine deck, 75mm short-barreled gun. Besides, road wheels, return rollers and track come as single subassembly for easy assembly.
