The StuG III Ausf. B was armed with a low velocity 75 mm StuK 37 L/24 gun, an imporved drivetrain, and wider tracks than its predecessor, the Ausf. A. In their role of assault guns and tank destroyers, the Sturmgeschütz series of self-propelled artillery proved a very successful one. Because of their low profile design, StuGs were hard to hit and easy to hide from the enemy --- making them highly effective weapons with 20,000 ‘killed’ tanks to their credit by early 1944. Features diecast metal construction with plastic accessories, hatch opens, barrel elevaes, and tracks that roll. Includes commander figure.
