The superstructure was redesigned and an MG42 machine gun with shield, commander's vision cupola and smoke dischargers were also added. Armed with a more powerful, long barreled 75mm L/48 gun, the Ausf.G was assigned the role of a tank destroyer rather than that of an assault gun. This model depicts a StuG III that served with the 5th Pz. Abt., 25th Panzer-Grenadier Division, which was almost destroyed in an encirclement near Minsk but was later reformed to continue the defense of the Western Front.
