Germanic tanks. Stug III and Stug IV Assault Guns

Stug. III - the most massive tracked armored vehicle of the German army of World War II. It was created as an infantry fighting support vehicle - an assault gun. The base was the chassis tank Pz. Kpfw III. After arming in 1942, the long-barreled gun became essentially the main anti-tank weapon of the Wehrmacht, and the functions of the assault gun were transferred to the StuH 42 assault howitzer, created on the same base.

    Practice has shown Manstein is right in the need for assault artillery. Rapid raids of tanks, self-propelled guns and armored personnel carriers in the rear were the main components of the blitzkrieg.
