Remains of a StuG III Ausf. F from the 202nd Assault Gun Battalion in the liberated city of Kursk

Remains of a StuG III Ausf F from the 202nd Assault Gun Battalion in the liberated city of Kursk, on Lenin Street. This vehicle was equipped with broad winter tracks known as “Winterketten”

 

Did you know? Representing a significant enhancement in firepower for the StuG series, the “F” variant is equipped with the elongated 7.5 cm StuK 40 L/43 cannon. When firing armor-piercing Panzergranat-Patrone 39 ammunition, the StuK 40 L/43 demonstrated great armor-penetrating capabilities, capable of piercing 91 mm of armor sloped at a 30-degree angle from vertical at a distance of 500 meters, 82 mm at 1,000 meters, 72 mm at 1,500 meters, and 63 mm at 2,000 meters. These specifications allowed the Ausf. F to effectively engage most Soviet armored vehicles within typical combat distances. This transformation positioned the StuG as more of a tank destroyer rather than merely an infantry support vehicle.
