Did you know? Production of the Sturmpanzer recommenced in December 1943, resulting in an additional 60 vehicles constructed exclusively on new Pzkpfw IV Ausf. H chassis. This manufacturing effort continued until March 1944. During its inaugural combat engagement at the Battle of Kursk, it became evident that the driver’s compartment lacked sufficient armor protection, prompting the implementation of reinforcements. To enhance crew comfort, the gunner’s hatch was eliminated, and a ventilation fan was installed. In an attempt to alleviate the strain on the front suspension, which yielded only partial success, internally sprung, steel-rimmed road wheels were substituted for the two front rubber-rimmed road wheels.
