Its first war action was unlucky: during the battle of Kursk it sustained very high losses without showing its qualities.
With a better antipersonnel armament and a reinforced armor, it would become a frightning anti-tank weapon during the rest of the war, especially in Italy. The last four units surviving still tried to stem the Russian flow near Berlin in April of 1945.
The combat compartment is located at the rear of the vehicle. The long barrel of the gun ends with a muzzle brake beyond the hull. The general outlook is boxy.
There are no return rollers.
