The StuG.III (Sd.Kfz.142), based on the widely used Panzer III family of tanks, evolved into a very capable German tank destroyer during WWII. In fact, the StuG.III was Germany’s most widely manufactured armored fighting vehicle of the war. As enemy tanks improved their protection and armament, Germany responded by fitting the 7.5cm StuK 40 L/48 gun inside the vehicle’s casemate. This variant was known as the Ausf.G, of which 7,720 were produced from December 1942 through till April 1945. This made the Ausf.G the most common German tank destroyer variant by far, and hence one of the most popular amongst modelers too.

Dragon’s newest 1/35 scale StuG.III Smart Kit depicts an Ausf.G model from the December 1943 Production timeframe. This means it displays unique features such as a cast gun mantlet (Saukopfblend) and it also has new sprocket wheels without any hub caps. The steel return rollers are brand new for this late-1943 variant too. The protective side skirts (Schürzen) are provided as separate metal plates that lend themselves perfectly to the task of replicating those on the original vehicle. Other photo-etched parts are included for components such as fender details, air intake grills and idler wheel rings. This is another fine StuG.III Ausf.G kit from Dragon – a December 1943 vehicle.
