About the Sturmgeschutz III Ausf.G Saukopf
The most numerous version of the StuG III, over 7800 type G guns were produced betweenDecember 1942 and April 1945. The early G-type had a welded-type gun mantlet, while an80mm thick cast Saukopf gun mantlet was added in February 1944. The superstructure wasredesigned and an MG42 machine gun with shield, commander s vision cupola and smokedischargers were also added. Armed with a more powerful, long barreled 75mm L/48 gun,the Ausf.G was assigned the role of a tank destroyer rather than that of an assault gun. TheStuH type-42 variant mounted a 105mm howitzer on the StugG III Ausf.G chassis and wasdeveloped to fulfill the StuG III s original role of infantry support.
