First Legion is extremely pleased to present the next vehicle in our “Battle of Normandy” series, NOR089 German Stug IV 17th SS Pz Gren Div Gotz von Berlichingen. The 17th SS Pz Gren Div Gotz von Berlichingen was established in 1943 from replacement units and conscripts and saw action against the American forces in Normandy where it suffered extremely heavy losses. The Sturmgeschütz IV (StuG IV) was an assault gun based on the chassis of the Panzer IV. It performed admirably in it's role as a tank killer and was typically attached to infantry divisions. It had the same main armament as the German Panzer IV, the 7.5 cm StuK 40 L/48 and a crew of four men. Out 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. It truly is a stunning model with extremely detailed weathering and painting which has been produced in very limited quantities.
