- Sturmgeschutz III Ausf.G (Sd.Kfz.142/1) (Plastic model)
The first batch from destroyed at least eighty-seven enemy tanks for a loss of only eight StuGs some of which were destroyed by their crews to prevent enemy capture. After the war, the StuGs were the main combat vehicles of the Finnish Army up until the early s when they were phased out. These StuGs gained the nickname "Sturmi" in the Finnish military, which can be found in some plastic scale-model kits.
Gs were delivered to Romania in the autumn of By February , 13 units were still in use with the 2nd Armoured Regiment. None of this initial batch survived the end of the war in May that year. Hungary fielded its StuG IIIs against Soviet troops during their sweep into the country in end up until early As with Hungary, Bulgaria received several StuGs from Germany too but almost none saw service against the Soviets, the country having ended the alliance with Germany by switching sides to the Allies before the Soviets invaded.
Post-WWII, these were used for a short time before being turned into fixed gun emplacements on the Krali Marko Line on the border with neighbouring Turkey. These were used by the Yugoslav People's Army until the s when they were replaced by more modern combat vehicles. By the time of the Six-Day War in , all of them had been either destroyed, stripped for spare parts, scrapped or emplaced on the Golan Heights as pillboxes.
None remain in service today. Production numbers were: . A rotating cupola with periscopes was added for the Ausf G.
Ball bearings were once again installed from August Shot deflectors for the cupolas were first installed from October from one factory, to be installed on all StuGs from February Some vehicles without shot deflectors carried several track pieces wired around the cupola for added protection. From December , a square machine gun shield for the loader was installed, allowing an MG34 to be factory installed on a StuG for the first time.
When stowed this shield folded back, partially overlapping the front half of the loader's hatch cover. A curved protrusion welded to the backside of the shield pushed the shield forward as the front half of the loader's hatch cover was opened and guided the hatch cover to naturally engage a latch point on the shield thus, supporting the shield in it's deployed position without exposing the loader to hostile forward fire.
The loader's machine gun shield was later replaced by rotating machine gun mount that could be operated by the loader inside the vehicle sighting through a periscope. In April , 27 of them were being field tested on the Eastern front. Favourable reports led to installation of these "remote" machine gun mounts from the summer of From October , G versions were fitted with the Topfblende pot mantlet often called Saukopf "Pig's head" gun mantlet without a coaxial mount.
The lack of large castings meant that the trapezoid-shape boxy mantlet was also produced until the very end. A coaxial machine gun was first added to boxy mantlets, from June , and then to cast Topfblende, from October , in the middle of "Topfblende" mantlet production. With the addition of this coaxial machine gun, all StuGs carried two MG 34 machine guns from fall of Also from November onwards, all-metal return rollers of a few different types were used due to lack of rubber supply. Zimmerit anti-magnetic coating to protect vehicles from magnetic mines was applied starting in September MIAG facility or November Alkett facility and ending in September In , a variant of the StuG Ausf.
F was designed with a These new vehicles, designated StuH 42 Sturmhaubitze 42 , Sd. Gs being used in the anti-tank role.
The StuH 42 mounted a variant of the G chassis. The muzzle brake was often omitted due to the scarcity of resources later in the war.
