The StuG III Ausf. E Assault Gun is strong vs infantry and light vehicles.

Overview[edit | edit source]

The StuG III Ausf. E is almost exactly the same as the StuG III Ausf. G; another Assault Gun, but has a weaker main gun and is slightly cheaper in terms of manpower and fuel.

Weapons[edit | edit source]

7.5 cm Kampfwagenkanone 37[edit | edit source]

This main gun is specialized for anti-infantry, having a lower velocity and armor penetration than the StuG III Ausf G. Assault Gun. However, the high explosive shells fly towards the target like short range light artillery for good effectiveness against infantry and buildings. The StuG III Ausf. E is arguably a weaker and cheaper counterpart to the Sturmpanzer IV.

Hull-mounted 7.92mm MG 42[edit | edit source]

Anti infantry machine gun that can suppress with sustained fire but with angled fire zone that requires the tank to rotate to use it effectively.
