A behemoth Sturmtiger in Drolshagen, Germany in April 1945. Based on the late model Tiger I, only 18 production model Sturmtigers were ever built. The colossal 380mm Raketen-Werfer 61 L/5.4 main gun it carried more than packed a wallop, and due to its size only 14 shells could be carried inside the vehicle. Three companies were formed to operate these new vehicles, and some actually did see combat beginning as early as August 1944 during the Warsaw Uprising. Additionally they saw action during the Battle of the Bulge and the Reichswald Campaign. A few were even present in the vicinity of the Ludendorff Bridge at Remagen when the Americans and Germans clashed over it in March 1945, acting as supporting artillery (albeit not very sufficiently). Today at least three Sturmtigers survive in museums in Germany and Russia.

Destroyed in Vuosalmi, July 11th 1944.
It took a hit to the fighting compartment. The driver corporal Pirttinen was seriously wounded. The commander sergeant Rastas and the gunner lance corporal Rajamäki were wounded. All managed to bail out except for the driver. The commander returned to get the driver out, but the StuG took another hit killing the driver. The loader sergeant Kuismin was reported MIA. He was probably killed by Soviet small arms. #war #ww2 #worldwartwo #worldwar2 #color #colorful #crew #Finish #Finland #camo #soviets #stug #assaultgun #tank

SU-1
---
The SU-1 was an early, soviet attempt of an assault gun. Built on the basis of the T-26 in 1931 it had a superstructure housing the 76,2mm KT-28 gun, which was later used on vehicles like the T-28, T-35 or BT-7A. Also note the commanders cupola. The vehicles purpose would be to support infantry in direct fire support. Unfortunately though only one prototype was ever built, because it was deemed that the T-26-4 prototype (mounting the same gun, but in a turret) would render the SU-1 redundant. In addition, the interior was deemed to small for the crew to operate effectively. ---

Two early Sturmgeschutz III Auf. B (SdKfz 142) in an unknown location, probably Russia during the early stages of Barbarrosa, 1941.

Often erroneously called a tank, the Sturmgeschutz (Assault Gun) was in fact a self-propelled gun that made its debut during the invasion of France and the Low Countries in May, 1940. With its low silhouette and powerful 75mm infantry gun the StuG III excelled in dealing with hard points such as bunkers and MG nests.

With the appearance of the Soviet T-34 in 1941, the Germans found themselves hopelessly outgunned and outclassed in terms of armor, and until a solution could be found, the StuG III with its short barreled 75mm gun, saw itself being used as an anti-tank weapon. A daunting task given that, due the low muzzle velocity of its gun, the StuG and its crew had to get dangerously close to the T-34 for a killing shot. As the war progressed the StuG III's role in the battlefield changed from offensive infantry support to defensive anti-tank, a role to which was by then well equipped for with its long barreled 75mm StuK L/43 or L/48, the same gun that equipped the PzKpfw IV.

With more than 9000 built, the StuG III was the armoured fighting vehicle produced in greater numbers by Germany during the war. (Photo source - Bundesarchiv)
