StuG Flammenwerfer

Initially designed for infantry support, the Stug III based on the Panzer III chasis became probably the most numerous of Germany's AFVs in WWII. The kit represents an Ausf F converted to mount a flamethrower. The 75mm was replaced with a flame tube with an effective range of 50-55 metres. A total of 10 vehicles were converted in 1942 and despite successful testing they were never used in combat. As a result the vehicles were later converted back to standard assault guns.
