M3A1s from 563rd Separate Tank Battalion. Ozereika Bay, 4 February 1943.
Spoiler
On the night of 3-4 February 1943, Soviet forces staged amphibious landing on the either side of the Black Sea port of Novorossiysk. The amphibious landing at Ozereika Bay included an attempted landing by 33 M3L tanks of 563rd Separate Tank Battalion. Half of the tanks were trapped when their barge was hit by German artillery fire, preventing them from landing. Other were dropped in deep water and their engines were flooded. About a dozen made it to shore, some fighting their way into the nearby towns. The attack was crushed by German coastal artillery fire and over a thousand infantry and tanks were captured or killed. It was a disaster similar to the ill-fated Dieppe Raid of 1942.

Seth - The armoured cover of the smoke grenade rack is missing on that Ausf. B but heck, you can always hang the mandatory/multiuse zinc bucket from it  :)

Hopefully, we'll get to see StuG III Ausf. A in the French campaign. It should have good ability to "blow some smoke" - with five smoke grenades on the rear and 10 x Nebelgranaten on board. And the speed, it could hit over 60 km/hr; it's rather telling that all Ausf. A required transmission and engine swaps after the French campaign (10 gear S.R.G.32 8 145 replaced by 6 gear S.S.G.77).





StuG III Ausf. A from Sturmbatterie 660, that got stuck in mud while supporting the infantry attack on Xertigny, 18 June 1940.
Spoiler
After knocking down a street barricade, StuG drove through thick stone wall and got stuck on marshy meadows behind it.
Uffz. Heinrich Engel fought with his Ausf. A until the end of 1941, until it skidded down the 10-meter deep slope into the Shosha river. By that time, StuG had over 7,000 km in pedometer.
