    Default German StuG IV found in Poland (2006)

    Hi!
    I and my team in 28- 30 August (phase I) and 28 September - 1 October (phase II) 2006 recover from small river Rgilewka in Grzegorzew near Kolo (in mid western Poland) wreck an assault gun Sturmgeschütz IV /StuG IV/ (Sd.Kfz.167 – Sonderkraftfahrzeug 167).
    We find this wreck at the end of February 2006. In phase I we excavate only a wheel and some minor parts. In phase II we recover damaged turret with the gun.
    It's StuG IV (late version produced by Krupp) with "Saukopf" (pig head) gun mantlet, without antimagnetic cement (Zimmerit).
    We find too: 1 machine gun (MG 34 with ammunition), 2 panzerfaust, 2 missiles (to the 75 mm guns) and 1 helmet.
    Our StuG IV we delivery to the Museum of Armour in Poznan.
    Best regards

    Looks great! It will be good if you manage to get the chassis, too.
