Ramsch's Charge - GEAB12
In the morning hours of 17 December the advance guard of 2.Panzerdivision reached the town of Clerf in the Ardennes, where they were stopped by American Sherman tanks. Major Horst Rämsch brought forward his Panzer IV tanks and StuG G assault guns to clear the way. The battle lasted into the evening, when the last Shermans were destroyed or forced to retreat. The Panzergrenadiers then were then able to take the town.
Panzer IV H
The Panzer IV H was basically a late model Ausf G with six-speed Zahnradfabrik ZF SSG76 transmission. The armour of the Panzer IV H was 80mm from the start of production; which was equal with the additional bolt-on armour that featured on later version of the Ausf G.

The StuG G
The StuG G assault gun was by far the most widely produced and used in the StuG series. Between 1942 and 1945 over 7,700 were produced. The StuG G used the hull of the Panzer III M with a low-profile superstructure. This made the assault gun incredibly difficult to spot as it lay in ambush amongst dense terrain.
|The StuG G (Late) in Flames Of War|
The Panzergrenadier regiments are the assault infantry of the German armoured divisions and the Armoured (or Gepanzert) Panzergrenadiers are the hard spearhead of any infantry assault.
They are noted for their speed, mobility, and great firepower. Because they’re part of a Panzer Division they cooperate closely with the tanks of the Panzer Regiment.
Armed with two MG42 machine-guns for each squad the Panzergrenadier Platoon can unleash a substantial volume of firepower. Mounted in their armoured Sd Kfz 251/1 half-tracks they travel into battle. They can fight on foot or assault from their vehicles.
They do not fight according to linear and frontal principles, like the Grenadiers, but try and force their way through the lines into the rear of the enemy positions.
