Miniart 1:35 - Stug. III 0-Series


Miniart 1:35 - Stug. III 0-Series - Plastic Model Kit #35210

The German Sturmgeschütz III or StuG III assault gun was the country's 2nd most produced AFV of the WWII period (after the Sd Kfz 251). The StuG was designed to support the advancing infantry using direct fire. Early models were equipped with low-velocity 7.5 cm StuK 37 L/24 guns which were able to blast fortifications but could not penetrate armour well. After the Germans encountered the Soviet KV-1 and T-34 tanks those were substituted with high-velocity 7.5 cm StuK 40 L/43 and later 7.5 cm StuK 40 L/48. 

Before the production began, five prototypes of the vehicle were produced in 1937 - the experimental '0' series. They used the chassis and running gear of the Panzer III and featured a mild-steel superstructure and Krupp’s 7.5cm StuK 37 L/24 cannon. These AFVs were tested at a number of training facilities and remained in use as training vehicles until 1942.
