CLASSIC TOY SOLDIERS, INC. WWII German Stug IV w/side armour (1:32 scale) plastic toy soldiers.
Goes with 1:32 scale plastic toy soldiers, though its true scale is closer to 1:38 scale.
Produced by the Germans in WWII, the Stug is a turretless track vehicle mounting a cannon capable of only limited traverse. First produced in 1940, its original intent being that of an infantry support vehicle. Being cheaper, easier and less time consuming to produce than a turreted tank, Stugs were produced in greater numbers than the more acclaimed turreted tanks.
Side armor (Schurzen), introduced in the last years of WWII was designed to provide protection primarily against Russian anti-tank rifles and low velocity high explosive rounds.
