Developed from 1939 through 1940 on the chassis of the Panzerkampfwagen I. Equipped with the 150 mm s.I.G. 33 gun that was mounted together with the gun carriage. Rate of fire was three rounds per minute; on-board ammunition totaled eight shells. The vehicle required the support of an ammunition carrier. The SPG was used from 1940 through 1943 during the French Campaign, Balkan Campaign, and on the Eastern Front. Later the Sturmpanzer II with a similar gun type was developed.
It has a large gun for its tier and is considered fairly dangerous. It has sluggish movement, and a slow rate of fire, but it can one-shot almost any tier 2 - 4 tank it hits directly.
The Sturmpanzer I Bison leads to the Sturmpanzer II.

Pros and Cons
- Above average top speed
- Above average damage and penetration
- Above average gun traverse speed and elevation arc
- Above average view range
- Below average engine power and traverse speed
- Below average armour
- Below average rate of fire
- Below average accuracy, aim time, and gun arc
- Below average ammo capacity
- Nothing carries over from the Leichttraktor. If you played the Panzerjager I already, then the Maybach HL 38 TR engine will already be unlocked.
- Your best bet is likely to research the upgraded suspension first, then go for the Maybach HL 38 TR engine.
The 15 cm sIG 33 (Sf) auf Panzerkampfwagen I Ausf B was a German self-propelled heavy infantry gun used during World War II. The Invasion of Poland had shown that the towed sIG 33 guns assigned to the infantry gun companies of the motorized infantry regiments had difficulties keeping up with the tanks during combat. The easiest solution was to modify a spare tank chassis to carry it into battle. A sIG 33 was mounted on the chassis of the Panzer I Ausf. B, complete with carriage and wheels, in place of the turret and superstructure. Plates 13 millimeters (0.51 in) thick were used to form a tall, open-topped fighting compartment on the forward part of the hull. This protected little more than the gun and the gunner himself from small arms fire and shell fragments: the loaders were completely exposed. The rearmost section of armor was hinged to ease reloading. There was no room to stow any ammunition, so it had to be carried by a separate vehicle. When mounted, the sIG 33 had a total 25° of traverse and could elevate from -4° to +75°. It used a Rblf36 sight.
The chassis was overloaded and breakdowns were frequent. The vehicle's extreme height and lack of on-board ammunition were severe tactical drawbacks.Thirty-eight were produced in February 1940, by Alkett. Thirty-six of these were organized into independent schwere Infanteriegeschütz-Kompanie ("Self-propelled Heavy Infantry Gun Companies"); mot.S. Numbers 701-706 and these were assigned to the 1st, 2nd, 5th, 7th, 9th, and 10th Panzer Divisions in the Battle of France as well as Operation Barbarossa. The 705th and 706th were destroyed during Operation Barbarossa, belonging to the 7th and 10th Panzer Divisions respectively. Of the remaining companies, only the 701st participated in the opening stages of the subsequent Case Blue in 1942, although it, and its parent 9th Panzer Division, were transferred to the Army Group Center by the end of the summer of 1942. The last reference to them is with the 704th Company of the 5th Panzer Division during the middle of 1943.
