Forces of Valor 81206 German Sturmgeschutz III Ausf. G Assault Gun - 3.Panzer-Grenadier Division, Battle of the Bulge, 1944 (1:32 Scale)
"If the tank succeeds, then victory follows."
- Major-General Heinz Guderian, "Achtung Panzer!"
The German Sturmgeschutz was one of the most successful armored fighting vehicles of the Second World War. It arose from an original concept of the pre-war panzer divisions, whereby a special vehicle for infantry support work was planned. During the war years, the Sturmgeschutz was rapidly developed and upgunned, and was used both in its original role as an assault gun and also as a tank destroyer.
This particular 1:32 scale replica of a German Sturmgeschutz III Ausf. G assault gun was attached to 3.Panzer-Grenadier Division, which saw action during the Battle of the Bulge.
