GBX83 - StuG Platoon (FoW)
StuG G Platoon (GBX83) includes five plastic StuG III G sprues (with 7.5cm & 10.5cm gun options), one plastic Tank Commander sprue & one StuG III decal sheet.
The StuG G assault gun was by far the most widely produced and used in the StuG series. Between 1942 and 1945 over 7,700 were produced. The StuG G used the hull of the Panzer III M with a low-profile superstructure. This made the assault gun incredibly difficult to spot as it lay in ambush amongst dense terrain.
Later versions were fitted with the Saukopf, or pig's head, gun mantlet. This slightly increased the armoured protection of the gun as is deflected in-coming shots.
A cupola was added for the StuG G, making it a key distinguishing feature from the previous StuG F/8. This addition increased the assault gun commander’s visibility. Schürzen skirts were added for further protection from enemy hand-held anti-tank weapons, such as the bazooka or anti-tank rifles.
