The sturmpanzer was a German armoured infantry support vehicle. It was built on a panzer IV chassy and carried a 15 cm StuH 43 L/12 cannon. It was used during the Battles of Kursk, Anzio, Normandy, and was deployed in the Warsaw Uprising. It was known by the nickname Brummbär (German: "Grouch") by Allied intelligence, this name was not used by the Germans. German soldiers nicknamed it the "Stupa", the of the term Sturmpanzer. Only 306 were built and they were assigned to four independent battalions. Only four Brummbärs have survived to this day
There were four different Brumbar models. The first series was built using panzer IV chasseys. The second series made a few minor changes like replacing the gunners hatch with a ventilation fan and steel rimmed wheels instead of rubber ones. The third series changed a few minor details. The fourth series redesigned the Brumbar. The engine and chassey of the panzer 4 J. It added a ball mounted machine gun and the commander’s cupola of the Stug III G.

The brumbar is a premium armored support vehicle. It can take out most vehicles In a single shot. Due to it‘s long reload and the fact that it is a case made stlyle tank destroyer it shoud not be used at close range nor as a frontline fighter. In my opinion if you want a derp tank in the German tech tree I would go for the sturmpanzer II. It is basically the same thing except that it is at a lower br and is not a premium tank.
