[Client Values; Actual values in
Specifically, the mismatch in crew values caused by commander's 10% crew skill bonus. Outside of a crew of 1 commander only, 100% crew is a fiction. The client values, given for 100% crew, will normally be taken into battle with 110% crew skill members aside from specific functions, causing their actual performance to deviate from the expected client value. These differences are taken into account in tooltip boxes.

StuG IV


V

annoG104_Stug_IV.png

2000

The StuG IV is a German tier 5 premium tank destroyer.

In February 1943, at the suggestion of the Ministry of Armament, the Krupp company began trials of a new vehicle with the superstructure of the updated StuG III and the new suspension of the Pz.Kpfw. IV H and J. The first vehicles were produced by December 1943. Having canceled the production of the Pz. IV, the Krupp company focused their attention on the production of the new vehicles starting in January 1944. A total of 1,108 vehicles were manufactured, with 31 more converted from existing tanks.

The StuG IV is available as a reward for completing the first set of Personal Missions. It comes with a 100% crew and is a good all around tank destroyer.

Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • Good rate of fire, great accuracy for its tier and amazing aim time for any tank above tier 4.
  • Excellent ammunition capacity (61 rounds compared to 44 rounds on StuG III Ausf. G.
  • Comes with 100% a crew.
  • Side skirts cover most of the side.
  • Will never see any tank above tier VI.


Cons:


  • Below average view range, even for a T.D.
  • Rather low mobility with low speed limits and a weak engine.
  • Mediocre firepower, with poor alpha damage and terrible penetration for a T.D.
  • Overall inferior to StuG III Ausf. G in most aspects.


Performance

The Stug IV is a "Jack of all trades" machine. There is not one area it specifically excels at and is a good, all around fun tank to play. The 7,5 cm Stu.K. 40 L/48 gun is rapid firing with excellent aim time characteristics. Although it only has 110mm of penetration with regular ammunition and 158mm with premium ammunition this will still suffice in higher tier games with sufficient weak spot knowledge. This gun is particulary good at tearing up lightly armored machines with its blistering rate of fire (3.55 seconds with 100% crew). Its accuracy of 0.35/100m allows it to snipe at weak spots reliably at range, which helps the low penetration a bit. A depression value of -6° means this tank can make use of small bumps in terrain which, coupled with its low profile, makes it a dangerous machine on uneven ground.

View range is quite poor at 310m but binoculars will boost this to an acceptable 380m, allowing the Stug IV to spot some of its own targets. The tank comes with its own 100% crew, but it is always a good idea to use this tank to train up other tank destroyer crews. The 360HP of this tank is quite underwhelming and hits from H.E. shells will remove quite a large proportion of these hit points. The traverse of 44 degrees/second makes this tank very hard to outflank in lower tier light/medium tanks and the Stug IV can (in the right hands and circumstances) do quite well for itself in close quarters. It is recommended though to stay at longer ranges to make use of the decent camouflage values.
