The Blightun Sturmpanzer is powered by a Maybach HL120TRM with a 6 speed gearbox. It can reach speeds up to 40 km/h with a range of 140 km. It is armed with one 7.5 cm StuK40 main cannon. The Sturmpanzer serves in an anti-tank role in support of front line units. The Quad leg configuration allow for all terrain deployment although maintenance requirements on the Porsche suspension have been higher than anticipated.
"Sturmpanzer", according to Google Translate, works out to "storm tank" in German.

There's no doubt the Sturmpanzer is designed to be an anti-armor powerhouse. Use Dash to rush to the front lines and then go after enemy Tank units. The Sturmpanzer can hit hard on most of the larger units the Allies can bring on the field. They can stare down their biggest threats head on as they are just as dangerous to them as vice versa.
Don't be afraid of the lightly armored infantry, either. This big guy can dash ahead and squash them with a deadly Tank Shock with 2 dice.
Consider a plug with additional anti-armor abilities. Play to the strengths of this unit and hit Allied armor hard. Or you can get General Rommler on board and increase your range and accuracy, making you all the more deadly.
You may also consider a plug with good Anti-Infantry potential, to aid you Panzerfaust.
Q - If the Sturmpanzer makes a Dash action during the Combat phase, can a Der Cyclops plug attached to it still attack during that phase?
A - No. A plug and the unit it’s attached to become essentially a single unit.
