Sturmpanzer IV is a German heavy assault gun.


Nicknamed "Brummbär" by the Allies, the Sturmpanzer IV is an assault gun variant of the Panzer IV. It is armed with a 150mm howitzer 43 L/12, a variant of the 15cm sIG 33, on the superstructure for fire support and one MG 42 on top for anti-infantry or anti-air measures. In difference to earlier developments like the Sturmpanzer I and the Sturmpanzer II, it was heavily armored and had a closed combat compartment. This made it suitable for direct fire support in the front line.

In Battlegroup42, the Sturmpanzer IV acts as a self-propelled artillery gun to provide indirect fire support. While it can be used to provide direct fire support on strongpoints, it is best to place the vehicle behind front lines for better protection.
