Following the success of the 15cm Sturm-Infanteriegeschutz 33 in Stalingrad, Panzer IV chassis was used to develop the next Sturmpanzer, an armoured infantry support gun. Production started in May 1943 and continued until March 1945. Allied intelligence called this tank Brummbar ("Grouch"), but the Germans didn't use this name. The Brummbär was used in the Battles of Kursk, Anzio, Normandy, and Warsaw Uprising. Overall around 300 vehicles were built.

The Sturmpanzer IV had the StuH 43 L/12 gun which could fire both high explosive and shaped charge rounds. However, the high gross weight and massive armoured structure overloaded the Panzer IV chassis. It made the entire vehicle overweight and inclined to front. The tank was underpowered and suffered from transmission failures.

The Sturmpanzer IV had many variations. The tank's superstructure and the StuH 43 gun were successively modified to fix the flaws based on frontline reports and comments.
