The Sturm-Infanteriegeschütz 33B was a German self-propelled heavy infantry gun used during World War II
About this creation
The Sturm-Infanteriegeschütz 33B was based off of the StuG III chassis and was developed for close quarters combat in an urban setting; specifically Stalingrad



It mounted the improved sIG 33/1 infantry gun, offset to the right side, for which 30 rounds were carried along with a MG34 fitted in a ball mount on the left side of the superstructure with 600 rounds



The first dozen vehicles were delivered by the end of October 1942 and assigned to Assault Gun Battalion 177 and 244, then fighting in Stalingrad. The remaining dozen vehicles could not be delivered to Assualt Gun Battalions 243 and 245, also fighting in Stalingrad, as the Soviets surrounded the German 6th Army on 21 November



Most of the vehicles were wiped out during Operation Saturn. The last strength report to mention them lists five remaining in September 1944. Only one survived the carnage and currently resides at the Kubinka Tank Museum in Russia

Nice SiG-33! Only 30 main gun rounds and 600 MG rounds, though? They would pretty quickly run out of ammo...

Glad to hear from you again. I like this, especially the hull MG. If you don't have room for the LDD files, you could upload them to Google Drive like I do.
