German Stug IV PzJg Abt 12 - 12th Volksgrenadier Division

Price: $359.95


First Legion

The 12th Volksgrenadier Division, reconstituted from the previously destroyed 12th Infantry Division, saw action initially in the Ardennes as the Battle of the Hurtgen Forest. This action was particularly important as the area was to serve as the launching point for "Wacht am Rhein", the German counterattack which ended the Battle of Hurtgen. It was attached to the 1st SS Panzer Corps, 6th Army for the Ardennes Offensive. When the offensive failed, 6th Panzer Army was transferred to the Eastern Front and the 12th Volksgrenadier Division was left behind to face the advancing Americans.
The Sturmgeschütz IV (StuG IV) was an assault gun based on the chassis of the Panzer IV. It performed admirably in its role as a tank killer and was typically attached to infantry divisions. It had the same main armament as the German Panther Tank, the 7.5 cm StuK 40 L/48 and a crew of four men.
This variant features opening and closing hatches, raising and lowering gun barrel and removable side skirts such that you can configure the model as you prefer, with all skirts, no skirts, or a mix them as desired.

The model is made from a mixed media (resin, metal, plastic, brass, photo etch, etc...) and has the following features:
- Opening & Closing Commander's Cupola
- Opening & Closing Loader's Hatch (MG Removes to facilitate)
- Gun Raises/Lowers
- Antennas
- Removable Individual Piece Side Skirts
- Extremely realistic weathering
