Background[edit | edit source]

The Stug III is a German Tank Destroyer in Post Scriptum. It is equipped with a 7.5 cm StuK 40 L/43 cannon and one 7.92mm MG 34 machine-gun mounted coaxially to the cannon. It is operated by a crew of 3; one driver, one gunner and one commander. As a casemate tank destroyer, the cannon has limited traverse to the left and right, about ±15° to each side.

The Stug III comes with 45 rounds of AP, 40 rounds of HE and 13 boxes of 250 rounds for the MG 34.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Because the gun has limited traverse, you should avoid taking it into cities, as it is very easily taken out by flanking infantry. The best role fo the StuG is as an ambush vehicle using foliage and obstacles as cover to further conceal its already sneaky low profile. One has to be very cautious of vehicles with rotating turrets as they can easily get to your sides/rear and take you out. Its main gun has the fastest rate of fire of all the medium/heavy tanks in the game which can bail you out in engagements.

Communication is key, since the vehicle has very limited view around it, and can easily be blinded by smoke. The driver plays a big part in lining up the shot.
