Work in progress (I will add illustrative photos of individual design changes in time)
The basis of this modification was the platform 8.Z.W. (Pz.Kpfw.III Ausf.J - Pz.Kpfw.III Ausf.N). Although in the Müller/Zimmermann source the authors mention other development platforms 9.Z.W. and 10.Z.W., this is an error. No such designation was used. The tubs for Pz.Kpfw.III differed from the tubs for StuG and were modified to produce a self-propelled gun. During production, however, there was the use of tank trays, or entire tank chassis, or there were conversions from the original tanks. Use and conversion were forced by a lack of material (air raids) and maintaining the continuity of production.
Production of the StuG 40 Ausf.G was started at Alkett in 12/1942, later these self-propelled guns began to be produced at Miag (2/1943). Both companies produced them until the end of the war. Armor sheets were originally produced by Brandenburger Eisenwerke. Production began at Deutsche Edelstahlwerke in 1/1943, at Harkort-Eicken Stahlwerke in 1943, and at Bismarkhütte in 1944. The engines were manufactured by Maybach in Friedrichshafen, Nordbau in Berlin, M.A.N. in Nuremberg and MBA in Nordhausen.



Characteristics of the first form of StuG III Ausf.G (post-war and model designation "Initial"):
- A superstructure with a different shape of the front part of the superstructure was used (see attached photo). The driver had a side window. It is stated that the shape of this part was influenced by the fact that for the first versions of Auf.G were used hulls originally intended for versions of StuG III Ausf.F8.
- The fan was located on the ceiling of the superstructure.
- Simple shape of the hole for the cannon sight, without additional protection.
- The antenna holders were mounted symmetrically on the rear wall of the superstructure, in later vehicles the right antenna was moved to the right.
- Use of a distance indicator light for night movement in an older type column.
- The billet was placed on the left fender next to the side wall of the superstructure.
- Narrow stops for engine cooling fan covers.
- Different shape of the front parts of the fenders from the superstructure to the small curved fender.


During production, which lasted almost 2.5 years, the design was constantly modified. Adjustments reflected in production were made almost on a monthly basis.

Between 4.-7./1944 173 tanks were refurbished Pz.Kpfw.III of various versions and determination into the form StuG 40 Ausf.G.
If the Pz.Kpfw.III Ausf.M platform was used for the conversion, it is assumed that a pair of sealing flaps was not mounted at the air outlet from the engine.

For replenishment. The previous photo is from E.Bay.com.
Today's photos are from my private collection.
These are StuG40 Ausf.G machines from Dolní Krupá 1945. Probably part of the 46.Inf.Div (see the sign of a jumping deer on the door of a parked truck), ... I do not know if they belonged directly to this unit or were only part of the column. Other photos from the same location already show Hetzer and other equipment.
Addition:


StuG III in the picture stug_02.jpg has several victories on the main (white) in the uncut original

StuG in the image stug_1.jpg (it is also published in the publication InAction) has 22 victories painted on the main. (black)

A ešte jedna fotka: Slovensko na jar 1944. Vozidlo predstavuje typickú frontovú skladačku. Na ľavej strane sú namontované tzv. Schurzen a pôvodný štít guľometu MG 34 bol nahradený ochranným štítom z transportéru Sd.Kfz. 251. Kanón 7,5 cm StuK 40 L/48 zo štítom typu Saukopfblende. (obrázok pod kamuflážou, ktorá asi predstavuje stroje z môjho príspevku nad!!!!).

Několik strojů StuG III G různých výrobních bloků je součástí větší aukce obrněné techniky (celkem 16ks) konané ve dnech 29.2.2008 do 15.3.2008 ve městě Jambol


Foto 1 - pozdější varianta s pancířem 80mm. Velitelská věžička je z tanku Panzer IV a rozhodně není na tomto typu standardem. Jde o bulharskou úpravu. Podle mě je stroj vybaven celoocelovými pojezdy. Kladka je ocelová ( bez gumové bandáže) což by spolu s homogenním pancířem (80mm) mohlo značit pozdější verzi. Přesto stroj nemá na věžičce klínový deflektor a čelní pancíř na pravo od kanonu je šroubovaný - pozdější verze jej měla navařený. Jedná se o zajímavý stroj.
Foto 2 - 4 verze s přídavným šroubovaným pancířem (30mm). Podle mého mínění je i tento konkrétní stroj vybaven celoocelovými pojezdy!! - podobně jako třeba další bulharský stroj Pz IV J. Pravděpodobně další poválečná přestavba z nedostatku náhr.dílů.
Foto 5 - stroj některé z prvních výrobních sérií s navařeným 30mm pancířem

StuG III Ausf. G z dodávok pre Sýriu a ukoristený Izraelom v Šesťdňovej vojne. Podľa tabuľky pri exponáte je z dodávok od Sovietskej armády, aj keď mne sa to nezdá. Skôr sa prikláňam ku Československu. Ale skusim si to ešte overiť.

StuG III Ausf.G ("černá 101"), Panzermuseum Munster, 2011. StuGy III Ausf.G byly v podobě vystaveného stroje vyráběny v listopadu a prosinci 1944. Tato vozidla pak sloužila u útvarů Sturmgeschütz-Brigade 905, Sturmgeschütz-Brigade 911 a Fallschirm-Sturmgeschütz-Brigade VII. Zobrazený stroj byl vyroben v prosinci 1944. Američané ho ukořistili v roce 1945, po čemž ho převezli do Aberdeen Proving Ground v USA. Poté putoval do Pattonova tankového muzea ve Fort Knox, odkud byl v září 1979 darován Kampftruppenschule 2. Vozidlo bylo mezi lety 1983 až 1987 restaurováno do provozuschopného stavu.
