The StuG.III (Sd.Kfz.142) was based on the widely used Panzer III family of tanks, and it evolved into a very capable German tank destroyer during WWII. In fact, the StuG.III was Germany’s most widely manufactured armored fighting vehicle of the war. As enemy tanks improved their protection and armament, Germany responded by fitting the effective 7.5cm StuK 40 L/48 gun inside the vehicle’s casemate. This variant was known as the Ausf.G, of which 7,720 were produced from December 1942 through till April 1945. This made the Ausf.G the most common German tank destroyer variant by far. Dragon’s newest 1/35 scale StuG.III Smart Kit depicts a very specific Ausf.G model of the Late-Production in Dec 1944.

This is not just another StuG.III kit, as it has features unique to a late-war vehicle produced in December 1944. This has resulted in brand new parts such as a gun travel lock and rear tow hook being created. What’s more, this new kit of the popular StuG.III G receives brand new 40cm tracks made from DS to achieve incomparable detail definition and ease of assembly. Photo-etched components involve such elements as air intake grills and idler wheel rings, plus a brand new frame for stowing equipment on the engine deck. This is another fine 1/35 StuG.III Ausf.G kit from Dragon, and it allows modelers to reproduce exactly a vehicle built in December 1944.
