Known by its nickname "Brummbär", this heavy assault gun has a 15cm howitzer in an armored casemate. It brings its gun into close range and smashes the enemy with 40kg shells.

Effective against infantry and structures. Weak to anti-tank weapons.


Effective infantry buster. When it comes to an engagement, Brummbar will usually wipe out the opponent infantry in 2 to 3 rounds, and for most of the cases, even a double-Panzerschreck Panzer Grenadier squad or an Anti-Tank gun will not be able to kill Brummbar before it kills themselves. The 40kg shells does not even need to penetrate the armor but sends most light vehicles back to their unassembled stage straightaway.

Can upgrade with a pintle-mounted MG-42 for quicker infantry termination.

When firing on moving infantry squads, predicting their future position with "Attack Ground" command is a good idea. Brummbar cannot attack an area within the fog of war however.
