In addition to its role in providing support to infantry, the StuG III served as an anti-tank weapon against T34 and KV-I tanks. Impressed with the StuG III's performance, the Soviets designed similar vehicles in the SU-122 assault gun and SU-85 tank destoryer, which featured fixed turrets mounting large caliber guns.
