Long before the start of World War II, the Wehrmacht had identified the need for a weapon capable of demolishing houses with two or three rounds, to be available in street-fighting situations. The 15cm sIG could do the job, but earlier attempts to mount it on an armoured chassis had not been successful. The StuIG 33B mounted it in a new, fully enclosed armoured superstructure on a Stug III chassis. 24 vehicles were produced between January and October 1942. They fought on the Eastern Front.
