Description

Designed in response to the fighting at Stalingrad where a well armored hard hitting assault gun would have proved its worth against the industrial buildings and factories.

The initial plans for the Brummbär were shown to Hitler in October 1942; he liked the concept and demanded they be put into production as soon as possible. The first 40 were in production by April 1943.

Brummbär first saw combat during the battle of Kursk with Sturmpanzerabteilung 216. Later 217, 218 and 219 Sturmpanzer-abteilungs were formed with the Brummbär. The Brummbär continued in production until the end of the war and saw service on the Western, Eastern and Italian fronts.

Beginning in April 1944, the final production series featured a redesigned superstructure which included a ball-mount MG to greatly improve defense against infantry and periscope for the driver. A cupola was also fitted to aid the commander by providing him with a better view of the battlefield.

In Flames Of War

Designed to withstand artillery attacks and provide close-in heavy gun support to the infantry, Brummbärs demanded attention when seen on the battlefield.
