The Sturm-Infanteriegeschütz 33B was a German infantry assault gun. It featured a 15cm sIG33/1 infantry gun fitted in a boxy superstructure that was mounted on a III chassis. Just 24 of these 21-tonne weapons were produced by Alkett. This self-propelled gun was used exclusively on the Eastern Front. Half fought in the bloody Battle of Stalingrad from October 1942 onwards, where their heavy guns could effectively demolish buildings in the bitter urban combat. The remaining vehicles deployed with the 23rd Panzer Division trying to break the encirclement of the 6th Army.

Dragon’s 1/35 scale model of the Sturm-Infanteriegeschutz 33 completes the ‘33B’ family. A new part is the front plate with its two associated hatches. It shares the same slide-molded fighting compartment superstructure, internal details such as the mount for the sIG33 gun, and large stowage boxes on the rear deck. The metal gun barrel even has realistic rifling so that it looks exactly right. The running gear and DS Tracks have been borrowed from Dragon’s newest Panzer III kits, meaning they’re of the highest quality. With this assault gun, Dragon has delivered a fantastically well-engineered model.
