It's not open-top, so probably no.

Unless War Gaming decides to go through with the idea of three German TD lines, no

This why Artillery should be broken-out of the SPG classification and reassigned to it's own class, "SPA" (Self Propelled Artillery)

SPG is a separately recognized category among historians and the authors of doctrine in many countries.

SPG typically describes a class of vehicles whose purpose is to engage targets in LOS, in support of infantry, ie, Assault Guns.

WG's organization is done for the sake of simplicity.

In this case, application of this vehicle was eclipsed by deployment of the StuH, equipped with the 105mm gun.

AlkaidStar777's question/suggestion has merit.

Devs are contemplating a class of vehicles called "Assault Guns" where vehicles like that will show up.
Just don't expect it anytime this year.

Given the effectiveness of "gold" 105mm HEAT ammo at this time can you imagine what it would be like to have 150mm HEAT ammo in something with real armor like this vehicle or the Brummbar?

Should make a decent low-tier premium arty.

I believe every relevant tank prototype/built tank is planned to be ingame eventually  :Smile_Default: , maybe years from now. Hell if there are enough prototypes we can have 5 german td lines. Maybe a problem its kinda overwhelming to noobies to keep up with knowing any of those tanks if there are so many of them, especially if they are prototypes as those arent in any other games either really as far as I know, nor is there very easily available info on the net on all prototypes and other rare tanks/armored vehicles, but its good for the richness and variety of the game.

This one, and a subsequent development, were not well armored, which led to the Brumbar.

Since when. SPG is used in conjunction with Artillery units that use guns.

SPA isn't the same as SPG. Any artillary with a barrel like the ones in game are SPG's.

SPA includes not just regular artillary but Rocket Propelled Artillary.

Which is why SPG is the correct description, All SPG's in game are SPG's. Because they use a gun.

Show me.

In the US Army, the guns of self-propelled artillery are not described as Guns - They are described as Howitzers, and loosely referred to as "SPH".

For game purposes, "SPA" will work just fine as WG does not, at this moment, plan to include rocket artillery in the game.

If they decide to include rocket artillery at a later date, then "SPA" will still apply, or a new acronym can be applied.
