Stuh 42 War Thunder

War Thunder Sturmhaubitze 42 Ausf G 1943

The StuH 42 is essentially a StuG III G with a 10,5 cm howitzer. While the StuH 42 bears much resemblance to the StuG III F and StuG III G, its play style is much, much different. While StuG is most effective at medium to long range combat, StuH is much more suitable for close to very close range. The first serial StuH 42 entered the troops in March 1943 and by the beginning of the offensive on the Kursk Doug there were 68 units. Subsequently, 105-mm self-propelled guns were actively used on all fronts, and the most significant battles in their career were the battle in Hungary and the defense of Berlin.

Vyacheslav “BVV_d” Bulannikov, Game Designer:

“Assault variant of the Stug-3 SPG, where the 75mm anti-tank gun was replaced with a 105mm Rheinmetall-Borsig StuH42 howitzer, which was created based on the leFH 18 howitzer light field gun. The first representative of this type of vehicle in the game. Powerful high-explosive shells allow combat with light armoured vehicles and medium tanks weaker areas are targeted, and HEAT ammunition capable of destroying even heavy tanks.”

E’ il primo rappresentante di questo tipo di veicoli nel gioco. Potenti proiettili ad alto esplosivo permettono l’ingaggio contro veicoli leggeri e carri armati medi nelle zone dove sono più deboli e le munizioni HEAT sono capaci di distruggere i carri armati pesanti.

“An assault howitzer from 1943. This variant is based on the StuH 40 ausf G, the chassis of which was best suited for installing a 105 mm howitzer. Originally howitzers were equipped with a “two-chamber” muzzle brake which we can see in this version. Later, from September of 1944, howitzers designed for installation on this vehicle were produced without a muzzle brake.”
