General Information
The StuG IV was designed in 1942, manufactured by Krupp based on the existing fully tracked PzKpfw IV and was in use from 1943 to 1945.

The vehicle was powered by Maybach 'HL120' petrol powerplant producing 300 HP which could drive the vehicle on roads at up to 24 mph with a range of about 131 miles before refuelling. Its cross country performance was good providing a max speed of about 12 mph and a range of about 52 miles.

It was armed with 1 light machine gun. Its main armament consisted of a 7.5cm StuK 39/40 L/48 which could penetrate 128 mm of flat plate at 400 metres

This was an equivalent of the StuG III based on the Panzer IV chassis.

An explosion within 3 mtr of infantry in the open will cause 99% casualties - lethal.
An explosion within 6 mtr of infantry in the open will cause > 66% casualties and could damage some AFV's.
An explosion within 16 mtr of infantry in the open will cause 33% casualties.
The blast effect of this shell exploding within 1 mtr of an armoured vehicle will penetrate 1 mm of the tank armour including the roof.

Hit probability is based on a static 2 x 2.4 metre panel at 0 degrees(vertical) at the range specified.

The data that has been used to create these records has come from Wikipedia, The Lone Sentry, The Bundes Archive and numerous books and websites that have provided the detailed information that has not been available anywhere else. The information we use to calculate the penetration tables, flight times and the hit probability comes from the Gun Calibre, the Shell Mass(Kg) and the muzzle velocity, plus range reductions to allow for gravity and wind resistance. This calculation originally came from a pre-war Krupp calculation which has been modified, and seems to fit the actual test results.
