Of all the Wehrmacht’s combat units, the Panzergrenadier-Division Großdeutschland was the premier one. Its name literally means “Greater Germany Division”, and it served exclusively on the Eastern Front before being annihilated near Pillau in May 1945. Its first real test as a division was in the drive towards Stalingrad in 1942, while at the start of 1943 it participated in the Third Battle of Kharkov. In mid-1943, Großdeutschland played an important role in the Battle of Kursk, the largest tank battle of all time. Dragon Armor has issued a fine 1/72 scale model of an armored vehicle from the Großdeutschland Division fighting in 1943. The model portrays a StuG.III Ausf.G Early Production variant from the division’s Sturmgeschütz (Assault Gun) Battalion. This particular battalion was composed of an HQ and three batteries containing six StuG.III assault guns each. As is the norm for Dragon Armor items, the model is extremely accurate dimensionally, and even the smallest detail is fully represented. It is painted in a summer camouflage scheme of sand covered in wavy green lines. The balkenkreuze is clearly emblazoned on the superstructure sides, as well as the division’s famous “helmet” insignia. The finish is topped off by judicious dry-brushing, resulting in an extremely attractive and realistic-looking vehicle. This is a fine StuG.III Ausf.G model from the division that was nicknamed “die Feuerwehr” (The Fire Brigade), and it is sure to spark a lot of interest amongst collectors!
