  • World War Two
  • German Sturmgeschütz III (StuG III) assault gun
  • StuG III Ausf. F: (Sd.Kfz 142/1; March–September 1942, 366 produced) long 7.5 cm StuK 40 L/43 gun, allowing the Ausf. F to engage most Soviet armoured vehicles at normal combat ranges. An exhaust fan was added to the rooftop to evacuate fumes from spent shells, to enable the firing of continuous shots. From June 1942, Ausf. F were mounted with longer 7.5 cm StuK 40 L/48 gun.
  • StuG III Ausf. F/8: (Sd.Kfz 142/1; September–December 1942, 250 produced) improved hull design similar to that used for the Panzer III Ausf. J / L with increased rear armour. This was 8th version of the Panzer III hull, thus the designation "F/8".  The 7.5 cm StuK 40 L/48 gun was standard until the last of the Ausf. G. Due to the lack of double baffle muzzle brakes, a few L/48 guns mounted on F/8s were fitted with the single baffle ball type muzzle brake used on the Panzer IV Ausf. F2/G.
  • StuG III Ausf. G (Sd.Kfz. 142/1; December 1942 – April 1945, ~8,423 produced) The final and most common of the StuG series. Upper superstructure was widened: welded boxes on either sides were abandoned. This new superstructure design increased its height to 2160 mm. The back wall of the fighting compartment got straightened, and the ventilation fan on top of the superstructure was relocated to the back of the fighting compartment. From May 1943, side hull spaced armour plates (Schürzen) were fitted to G (also Ausf. F/8). From May 1943, 80 mm thick plates were used for frontal armour instead of two plates of 50 mm + 30 mm. From November 1943G versions were fitted with the Topfblende pot mantlet (Saukopf "Pig's head") 
  • StuH 42 (Sturmhaubitze 42, Sd.Kfz 142/2) infantry support with 10.5 cm leFH 18 howitzer, built on StuG III Ausf. G chassis. 1,299 were built from March 1943 to 1945.
