   StuH 42 Veterancy



  • StuHs are excellent at clearing out buildings that have infantry inside of them, or demolishing base structures.
  • The StuH's gun is not useful against heavy armor, and is better suited against light armor or infantry.
  • The weapon's splash radius is much higher than the actual target damage. Whenever you engage large groups of infantry, use the 'Attack Ground' command instead of right-clicking an enemy squad. You'll notice a huge difference.


The StuH 42, short for Sturmhaubitze 42 (Assault Howitzer) was an assault gun developed from the Panzer III chassis, similar to the StuG III G assault guns that supported the infantry divisions. Unlike the StuG III G and StuG IV, the StuH 42's 10.5cm gun was a lower velocity field gun for fire support against softer targets. Its role was to knock-out defenses that were holding up the infantry advance, though its gun could defeat lighter amour at short range. Not many StuH 42s were made through-out the war, and the need fell sharply when Germany was put on the defense.

The StuH 42 in Company of Heroes is historically inaccurate in that it uses the Panzer IV chassis rather than a Panzer III chassis.
