Sturmpanzer IV Brummbär

The Sturmpanzer IV (also known as Sturmpanzer 43, Sturmgeschütz IV für 15 cm Sturmhaubitze 43, or SdKfz. 166) was a German heavily-armored infantry support panzer based on the Panzer IV chassis. The Sturmpanzer IV was nicknamed Brummbär (“Grizzly Bear”) by the Allies, although German soldiers nicknamed it “Stupa”. The Sturmpanzer IV was armed with a 15 cm StuH 43 L/12 mounted in a superstructure with 100 mm frontal armor.

Brummbär were issued to specialized Sturmpanzer-Abteilung (Stu.Pz.Abt.) 216, Stu.Pz.Abt. 217, Stu.Pz.Abt. z.b.V. 218, and Stu.Pz.Abt. 219 and served on all major fronts.

In searching Allied intelligence reports, note that Brummbär may be spelled Brummbär, Brummbaer, Brummbar, or Brummbarr along with all these spellings with only one “m”.
