About the Sturm III G w/M Track
Abbreviated the StuG III, the Sturmgeschutz, based on a Panzer III chassis, adopted a short barreled 7.5cm L/24 gun in place of the Panzer IIIs revolving turret. After confrontations with Soviet armor, the situation abruptly changed. To cope with this Russian tank threat, the Germans were forced to upgrade their existing weapons systems.

The G-type StugG III built from late 1942 onwards, used a more powerful, long barrel 7.5cm L/48 gun. The thin steel plates, known as Schurzen (skirts) were attached to the sides of the hull beginning in the spring of 1943. The Masterwork Collection model of the German Sturmgeschutz III Ausf. G Early Version comes in a dark yellow base with a red-brown camouflage pattern, and features markings of the 237th Sturmgeschutz (assault gun) Brigade. Commander's and Loader's hatches can be assembled in the opened or closed position and Schurzen can be attached/detached.

About the German Sturmgeschutz III Ausf. G Early Version
During WWII the German Army (Wehrmacht) employed many types of weaponry on tank chassis. Of these types, the one most mass-produced was that mounted on a Panzer III chassis. Abbreviated the "StuG" III, the Sturmgeschutz adopted a short barreled 7.5cm L/24 gun in place of the Panzer III's revolving turret. The "StuG" III was originally intended for infantry support. However, after confrontations with Soviet armor, the situation abruptly changed. To cope with this Russian tank threat, the Germans were forced to upgrade their existing weapons systems. The G-type StuG III built from late 1942 onwards, used a more powerful, long barrel 7.5cm L/48 gun. The thin steel plates, known as Schurzen (skirts) were attached to the sides of the hull beginning in the spring of 1943.
