German WWII Brummbar (w/German Cross Decals) -- Single Tank w/Commander
The Sturmpanzer (also known as Sturmpanzer 43 or Sd.Kfz. 166) was a German armoured infantry support gun based on the Panzer IV chassis used in the Second World War. It was used at the Battles of Kursk, Anzio, Normandy, and was deployed in the Warsaw uprising. It was known by the nickname Brummbär, German soldiers nicknamed it the “Stupa“, a contraction of the term Sturmpanzer. Just over 300 vehicles were built and they were assigned to four independent battalions.
The Sturmpanzer used a Panzer IV chassis with the upper hull and turret replaced by a new casemate-style armoured superstructure housing a new gun, the 15-centimetre (5.9 in) Sturmhaubitze (StuH) 43 L/12 developed by Skoda. It fired the same shells as the 15 cm sIG 33 heavy infantry gun. Thirty-eight rounds, with separate propellant cartridges could be carried.
Our early version Brummbar comes in a winter whitewash coat with 40 of each variant available as follows:
D version with serial number 3 on the sides
E version with serial number 8 on the sides
F version with no decals applied but does have German crosses supplied if you wish to apply.
All versions come with commander figure, separate side skirts (2 for each side or any combination you prefer), this vehicle also has the benefit of opening and closing commanders hatch and removable spare wheels. All in all this means several looks can be achieved and interestingly the commander figure from our Panzer 4 will sit nicely in the hatch.
There will be a tank commanders ACC PACK released this year featuring 4 commander figures in order that you can enhance your TG tanks.
Released in FEBRUARY 2021.
