The sIG33 auf Fgst.Pz.Kpfw.III(Sfl.) was a heavy infantry gun mounted on a StuG.III chassis. It’s also the subject of Dragon’s newest 1/35 scale kit release. Fortunately, modelers will find this kit much easier to assemble than it is to say or spell its name! The Sturm-Infanteriegeschütz 33B featured a 15cm sIG33/1 gun in its boxy superstructure. Just 24 of these 21-tonne weapons were produced by Alkett from December 1941 onwards. They utilized a StuG.III Ausf.E or F/8 chassis. Five crewmen operated this self-propelled gun that 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 didn’t reach Stalingrad because the German 6th Army was encircled by that time, so instead they deployed with the 23rd Panzer Division.

Dragon’s 1/35 scale new model of the s.I.G.33 auf Fgst.Pz.Kpfw.III(Sfl.) bears no relation or comparison to the old Sturm-Infanteriegeschütz 33B kit released many years ago. The lower hull is brand new, as is the slide-molded fighting compartment superstructure. Even internal details such as the mount for the sIG33 gun are all new, as are the large stowage boxes on the rear deck. The running gear has been borrowed from Dragon’s newest Panzer III kits, meaning it is of the highest and latest quality. The old kit used to be very popular with modelers, and now Dragon has delivered a fantastic new model that will satisfy the highest demands of contemporary modelers.
