Description

In late 1941 the StuG III chassis was selected for an attempt to mobilize the 15 cm Sig 33 heavy infantry gun. From December 1941 to October 1942 Ausf. E and F chassis (12 each) received a modified superstructure to accommodate the larger gun. These vehicles were known as Sturminfanteriegesch..tz 33. At least twelve vehicles saw combat in the Battke of Stalingrad where they were destroyed or captured

During the Battle of Stalingrad the German troops demanded an assault tank for street fighting purpose. Within a very short time, the proven infantry gun sIG 33, mounted on a Pz.Kpfw. III chassis, and enclosed by an armoured superstructure, was produced. This resulted in the 15 cm sIG 33 auf Pz.Kpfw. III. A total of 24 vehicles were produced and proved useful to destrol houses and pillboxes.

This kit by DML Dragon (China) comes in a large tray and lid type box. The box art shows a Stug. 33 from above, tooling down a heavily traveled road, that has lots of tank tread marks on it, between shell holes and a destroyed artillery piece. A side panel of the box gives a one-paragraph history of the vihicle in 6 languages, including English. The other side panel has 3 full color photos of the model made up, showing both sides and the rear.
