The Sturmpanzer IV, or Brummbår was an assault gun designed to knock buildings down. It featured a 150mm or 6 inch gun and carried 38 of these massive rounds. It was not designed as an anti tank gun. It was designed as a gun that would take down a building. The Germans put this gigantic field gun on the Panzer IV chassis and apparently that was not big enough for the StuH L/12 gun, and the first model suffered terrible breakdowns. The Germans then put a lighter 150mm gun on the chassis and that tank was used to put down the Warsaw Uprising.

They were able to manufacture 300 of them before the war ended. It housed five crew, a commander, a gunner, a driver and two loaders. It also featured a 7.62mm machine gun on the armored citadel. Bad ventilation affected the crews and they often had to leave the firing cabin after a few shells.
