STUH 42 AUSF. G EARLY PROD 72114 Miniart

The Sturmhaubitze 42, short for Sturmgeschütz III für 10.5 cm Sturm Haubitze 42, whose identification number was Sd.Kfz. 142/2, was an assault gun of the German Army used in the second half of the Second World War. It was designed as a replacement for the Sturmgeschütz III which, from a means of close infantry support, had evolved into a valid anti-tank weapon; the new vehicle was still based on the hull of the Panzer III from which the Sturmgeschütz was derived, but in the casemate it housed a slightly modified 105 mm leFH 18 howitzer. The StuH 42 became operational during 1943 and was built in more than a thousand examples, serving until the end of the war, sometimes also in anti-tank function.
