Nope and I once built a Tamiya 1/35 scale model of one

CLUE: I've made two references to what should now be a major giveaway already.

Sorry Kai but no cigar.

I honestly thought you would be on it very quickly.

CLUE: There are not many left today and there certainly isn't one in the UK such as Bovington Tank Museum for example.

Stürmpanzer IV Brummbär? Buildings at Stalingrad were certainly a consideration...and the Warsaw Ghetto I believe.

Bingo! and the two clues to buildings was down to the fact they were used during the Warsaw Uprising as well as many other theatres of action.



Over to you

That's why i thought of a StuG, made for obliterating houses.. congrats to Aktung

Apart from that the Porsche Tiger Sturmgeschuetz was the essential house killer used back then.

The "Brummbaer" used either 38 kg explosive bullet (against buildings and enemy fortifications, usually three bullets destroyed any building (where a later Porsche Storm Tiger needed only one), or a 25 kg hollow bullet (to destroy armoured enemy crafts).

First use was in mission 'Zitadelle' (1943 against Soviet forces in the Kursk salient against russian fortifications).

Not mich are left, 1 in Russia, 1 in Germany Munster tank museum. Well amoured, excellent punch, only 306 in all were built, with that number surely not "kriegsentscheidend" against ten thousands of enemies.

The Sturmpanzer IV "Brummbaer's" correct designation is:
Gerät 581
Sturmpanzerwagen 60416
Allkett (a company meaning 'alltrack')
SiG auf Panzer IV (SiG gun on Panzer IV chassis)
mit kardanischem Fahrwerk (with cardanic chassis frame)

No wonder they just called it "StuPa" (Sturm Panzer) or "Brummbaer" (~Buzz Bear)

It was also used to destroy enemy tanks, but the short 15 cm gun had a specal ballistic curve to hit far away targets, a task it was not designed for.
