e Sturmgesch├╝tz IV (also known as Sd.Kfz.167) was an assault gun produced in similar fashion to the more numerically common StuG.III. However, as its name suggests, it was based on the hull of the Panzer IV tank rather than the Panzer III. This came about because Alkett (a manufacturer of the StuG.III) was bombed in November 1943. Therefore, in an effort to increase assault gun production numbers, Krupp installed slightly modified StuG.III superstructures on the chassis of the Panzer IV. After production was approved on 6 December 1943, Krupp proceeded to build 1,108 StuG.IV vehicles between December 1943 and May 1945. While this number was far less than the StuG.III, Krupp did help ensure continuity of assault gun production. Crewed by four men, the StuG.IV proved an effective tank hunter. It weighed 23 tonnes and was armed with a capable 7.5cm StuK40 L/48 gun.

Dragon has already introduced 1/35 scale Smart Kits depicting Early-Production, Mid-Production and Late-Production variants of the StuG.IV tank destroyer. To complete the family, now comes the Last-Production type, which is distinguished by completely new side skirts and associated brackets. The skirts have a characteristic stepped appearance.

This new Last-Production version is accurately tooled and it has correct details such as new handles on the gearbox hatches. The box includes convenient DS Tracks, separate metal armor skirt plates and high-quality Cartograf decals to complete the StuG.IV family!
