that mobile artillery vehicles were solely built by Alkett, Berlin
   In 1942 the development of the StuH 42 (Sturmhaubitze 42, Sd.Kfz 142/2) was begun using Ausf F chassis, this assault gun was designed to provide infantry support with a bigger caliber of the main weapon instead of the ordinary 7,5 cm StuK 40. StuG III Ausf G and the earlier Ausf F and F/8 were used in the anti-tank role. The StuH 42 mounted a variant of the 10.5 cm leFH 18 howitzer, modified to be electrically fired and fitted with a muzzle brake. Production models were built on StuG III Ausf G chassis. The muzzle brake was often omitted due to the scarcity of resources later in the war. Alkett produced 1.299 StuH 42 from March 1943 to 1945, the end of WW II
