Tips

  • The Stug III is vulnerable to flanking from turreted tanks. If one of such tanks is spotted attempting to flank you, shoot out one of their tracks to foil their plan.
  • Stug III lacks a coaxial MG, which limits its anti-infantry capability.
  • Although the Stug III is equipped with an MG34 turret on the top, it is rather ineffective due to the limited cone of fire and the gunner's vulnerability to enemy infantry.
  • The armor on the front is effective against smaller cannons (such as 37mm shots from the M5A1 Stuart). However, it is not reliable at stopping medium tank gun's fire, and won't protect you against more advanced tank guns at all.
  • The Stug III's cannon breech and barrel are relatively easy to destroy. Hence, close-range engagements should be avoided.
  • The Stug III isn't very mobile and often gets outclassed by heavier tanks. Effectively using one requires a good amount of tanking experience.
